As a trained journalist with years of experience in print newspapers, I enjoy the challenge of writing nonfiction. It’s a pursuit made even more enjoyable with embellishments such as creative license, metaphor, and personal insight.
Interested in creative nonfiction? Over the years, I’ve written hundreds — maybe thousands — of articles and essays, but this is a place to start!
