When I was young, my professional goal was to make a living as a writer. I have done that very successfully. I’ve been a fulltime, part time and freelance reporter for newspapers, magazines and newsletters, an editor, blogger, and a columnist. I’ve written speeches and ghosted books for celebrities and business executives. I’ve written books under my own name and pseudonyms. You may have seen me on television or heard me on radio. Here’s an on-line interview discussing how and why I wrote one of my books.
All totaled, I have written more than 15 non-fiction books and hundreds of articles. I’ve won awards for my journalism. Take a look at my body of work and you will also see that I do a fair amount of public speaking. I consider it a logical outgrowth of non-fiction writing, an additional way of communicating with my audience.
Now, I’m taking what I know about non-fiction writing and moving into the world of novels. Actually, I’ve written one novel, Naked Prey, which was published in the 1990’s. I wrote it under a pseudonym. I now have the rights and have converted it to a Kindle book. Naked Prey was well received, got good reviews, but I know a lot more about writing then I did when I wrote it.
I’m sharing this knowledge with you so you can use what you know, too, and write your own novel.
