Introduction

I live and work in West Linn, Oregon and have written professionally since 1981.

I’m author of the AARP Crash Course in Finding the Work You Love: The Essential Guide to Reinventing Your Life (Sterling, 2008).

I've written hundreds of articles, including pieces for AARP, the magazine, American Way, America West, Amtrak’s Arrive, Discover, Hemispheres, Industry Week, Home, iQ, Los Angeles, MSNBC/MSN Online, PM Network (The Project Management Institute), Southwest Spirit, Westways, Wired and The Writer.

I am a regular contributor to Baseline and CIO Insight magazines.

I also handle corporate assignments--including brochures, speeches,white papers and annual reports. My work has appeared in materials for Charles Schwab & Co., Cisco Systems, Honda, IBM, Intel, Korn/Ferry, Microsoft, Oracle and Sun Microsystems. I've appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including shows on KABC radio in Los Angeles and Fox Television. And I’ve received numerous writing awards, including a Maggie in 1997 for best article in a trade magazine.

I am a past president of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, I’ve served as a guest lecturer at the University of Wisconsin, Madison Writer’s Workshop, and I'm an instructor at UCLA’s Writer’s Program.
