Some kids chase balls. I chase words and ideas.

I’ve helped experts write books, including an award-winning bestseller that’s now a classic in its field. My articles and essays have appeared in The New York Times, AARP Magazine, Scientific American, and a host of outlets you probably never heard of–from Quarter Horse Journal to AORN Journal. I’ve also led editorial teams and consulted for New York City area publishers, Dallas software firms, and nonprofits across the country.

These days I edit Sarasota Scene, a regional lifestyle magazine, and provide content for select organizations. I also spend an inordinate amount of time trailing around after 4-legged friends, which I justify as “book research.” Look for my forthcoming blog about interspecies relationships coming soon at PsychologyToday.com.

PS – You’re invited to share your love of dogs and help my book research by taking this survey. Thanks so much, and tell your friends!
