If you seek a writer/editor) of the highest caliber for your book, screenplay, stage play, novel, children's/young adult project, project about pets & animals, or to ghostwrite your autobiography - here I am. I also adapt novels into screenplays & vice-versa. NOTE: The only reason my completion rate isn't 100% is because 3 clients in a row bailed on completing our contracts; this wasn't exactly "fun" financially. I invite employers true to their word w/the budget to see projects through to completion ONLY to contact me. While this economy is challenging, by the same token, this is my business, not a game that can be terminated on a whim. I'm seeking clients with integrity, for that is what I always strive to deliver myself. Thanks! I take great pride in delivering only my best quality work and promise you will be thoroughly pleased by it. Thanks to all of my wonderful clients who have left such great reviews for me. If you'd care to join their number, that would be fantastic!

Johnny Angel Is My Brother, A Psychic Medium's Journey

My autobiography about being a psychic medium, and growing up in the same household as my beloved younger brother Johnny, who was born with severe cerebral palsy. Although John only spoke a handful of words, never walked, & relied on others for his complete care, he was absolutely the most evolved soul and best teacher I have ever known. He's my hero. His life was a gift, and I wrote this book to let the world know that those with such special needs have much to offer, if the rest of us are intell
