Writer Intverviewer Speechwriter

Category: Writing / Journalism
Always wanted to shine a little light on the niches of your life, but not sure how to go about it ? If you cannot get the nagging feeling out of your system, then you are probably on the right track.

If you have a background, history or life of accomplishment that you feel deserves to be explored, we can do this together for as short or as long a time frame as you are comfortable with.

Maybe you are game for an interview-style series of sessions for eventual distribution across the appropriate medium. Contact me.

I am a ghost writer with a literary ear and a sensitivity to the ironies of life. If you think your story would raise eyebrows, give me a shout.

Want to involve your kids from the inside out in a way they can make their own.? Do they seem to have an ear or other basic aptitude that only needs exposure ? I can help with a common-sense approach that will have them finding their own way to an enjoyable self-discovery.
