WHAT I BRING TO YOUR BOOK, WEBSITE, BUSINESS PLAN, AND/OR TO YOUR WARDROBE
I am a professional writer, with titles in literary fiction, nonfiction, and poetry (see Books). Articles, essays, stories, and poems have been published in magazines—nationally and internationally—such as The Rumpus, Gigantic, and The Chattahoochee Review. I hold a PhD. in creative writing from Georgia State University, where I was one of the founding editors of the journal New South. I worked as an editor and book designer for C&R Press and The Good Book Developers.
I work with corporations and private individuals as an editor, writing coach and consultant. Everyone from the novice who always dreamed of writing her great novel, to celebrity chefs who wish to publish a cookbook, to multinational real estate development firms looking to market their latest offerings have found a use for my services.
In addition, as the son of a fine mens haberdasher classic suiting was built into my genes (yes, you can consider that a pun). As a teenager I worked at the now (sadly) closed Dick Bruhn, A Man's Store, once a staple at the corner of Lincoln Street and Ocean Avenue in beautiful Carmel by-the-sea, California. I've combined my areas of expertise, not only as I'm currently at work on a book about men and their suits, but as a menswear consultant and retailer.
