I thoroughly enjoy the process of writing and designing books and newsletters for publishing in print and online. Writing a book, however, can also be a tortuous endeavor. I wrote two non-fiction guide books (shown below), one published by Penquin and the other by Macmillan. Since then, I have written and designed several free and short ebooks (with more to come), and I am sporadically working on a memoir (and a screenplay) that I hope to finish some day. On the newsletter side of things, I have provided newsletter writing and design services for several clients and I currently self-publish two electronic newsletters. I am most proud of a paid-subscription newsletter I created in 2000, called Educational Pathways (EdPath), that covered online higher education. This successful, monthly, 8 to 12 pager, which ran until 2008, first started as hard-copy print only and then moved to online. It became a launch pad for all kinds of work in the higher education space.
