I created ShootWriteRead as a container to showcase my work and market my skills as a seasoned writer, editor, skilled researcher, and photographer.
I enjoy reading contemporary and classic literature, science fiction, mystery, and romance novels. Each of these broad categories contains a variety of ever-changing variations. There are never too many books only too little shelf space. My bookshelves also include many graphic novels.
I also enjoy reading and writing about a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, education, visual arts, science, history, design, books, music, photography, social activism, race, gender, and civil rights.
Because of my wide-ranging interests, I am able to plan and coordinate large projects requiring the skills of others. I enjoy the challenge of working with diverse individuals, corporations, and non-profit organizations. My creative network includes photographers, graphic designers, artists, and multimedia specialists.
“Good writing has an aliveness that keeps the reader reading from one paragraph to the next, and it’s not a question of gimmicks to “personalize” the author. It’s a question of using the English language in a way that will achieve the greatest clarity and strength.”
