As a full-time professional, non-fiction freelance writer and photographer, my primary area of work is writing magazine articles and providing the photographs accompanying the articles. 

Over the years I have had the opportunity to write stories for a number of magazines and some major news events for newspapers. I have worked as a radio news reporter (an FM station), and on staff for a town newspaper as the local reporter covering everything from new babies to oil well drilling and more!

I continue to write articles for law enforcement magazines and have published four books on forensics. I have written profiles, travel articles, articles on architectural projects, interviews and more. My freelance writing services are by assignment, or request, and includes any research and interviews needed for the subject matter.
