Welcome to my blog. In the coming weeks and months, I hope to give you an insider's look at what it's like to write professionally. So many people say "I just know I have a book in me," but do they really know what goes into to writing one. Besides the hours and hours of painstaking care that goes into the actual writing of a book, there are other things a writer must consider.

I also write articles. In the last 28 years, I've published over 4,000 of them in a variety of newspapers, magazines, newsletters, and Web sites. My file cabinets--and my computer hard drives overflow with them. To read some examples, go to my Web site, Writing at Its Best, at

And, unlike a fiction writer, I deal in facts. To me, real life is far more intersting and diverse than the fantasy world of fiction.

So stay tuned for information and, I hope, inspiration. If I can help just one person achieve their writing goal, then writing this blog will have been worth it.
