A Brief Summary About Me


Technical Writer: 25 years as a senior technical writer for companies I’ve worked for: Xerox, Tektronix, Adobe, Frieghtliner, AKQA, and many agencies. I specialize in hardware, software, and API documentation.

Fiction Writer: For years (dare I say my whole life?) I’ve wanted to writer fiction, and I have. None published, nor finished. Then one day you meet the right person and together you pull off miracles. My partner and I have taken the plunge, not getting any younger! and are well into realizing our Fiction dreams…


Formatting: I format books for ePub, .MOBI, PDF, and Print. Some of my clients; David Busch, Bob “Dr. Mac” Levitus, and Lorelynn Mirage Cardo.

Publishing & Distribution: I can help with publishing and distribution through Ingram, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and selling your work on your own website.

Training: I write and maintain tutorials and courses on how to self-publish, use Joomla & WordPress to build websites, and how to brand and market your work.

Web Designer

Joomla: I am a Joomla frontend developer and designer. I wrote one of the first books published on how to use Joomla in 2008 by Peach Pit press which was translated into 4 languages. (Since, horribly outdated!) But I can help you create and maintain a Joomla based website.

WordPress: I run a creative network of WordPress blogs and Author platforms. I can help you create and design a WordPress site for your platform, blog, or business.

Creative Splatz

Artist: I’ve been drawing, crafting, and painting since childhood. Though time has not been in favor of my hobby, I hope to get back on that horse in the coming months.

Journaling: I believe your journey should be noted. I am in the process of creating holistic journals for writers, gardeners, and hobbyists.

Gardening: I love gardening. Not just for fresh herbs, veg, and fruits, but for the therapudic benefits as well. I maintain a blog on all things grown and growing.
