More Books

For over 20 years, I’ve worked with various publishers and book packagers across the country to research and write quality nonfiction titles for students or specialty audiences.

Learning about interesting topics and creating new ways to present them in books is challenging and rewarding. Meeting experts and fans along the way makes it fun, too!
