I have been a writer for most of my adult life. After earning a journalism degree, I worked in Los Angeles as a news writer at KABC radio and a reporter at the Associated Press. During a tour of duty in Vietnam, I served as an information specialist, writing hometown news releases and stories for Stars & Stripes, the military newspaper. In Sydney, Australia, I researched and wrote documentary scripts for two years at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, before starting a 22-year career in corporate public relations in southern California. I wrote newsletters, speeches, annual reports, and employee publications and supervised communications departments. With my wife, I have written freelance travel articles and a guidebook published in 1990 by Clarkson N. Potter titled Southern California for Kids. In 2010 I ghost-wrote Shepherd: Memories of an Interfering Man, a biography for a doctor in Australia. I live in San Diego with my wife, Kay.
