I have written 17 nonfiction reference books and numerous articles for print
publications and Web sites. My areas of expertise include New Age and spirituality,
Internet technologies and software, the World Wide Web, college admissions and
financing, distance education, and esoteric subjects, such as voodoo. My published
books are listed below. My other publishing credits include the short pamphlet Do You
Do Voodoo? (Garnet Publishing, 1999), chapters in Microsoft Office Desktop Reference
(Macmillan, 1998) and Internet Secrets (IDG, 1998), and numerous articles, reviews, and
Web site content. I have also edited several books, including Earthlink Total WebSite
Solution (Ventana Press, 1997), Teach Yourself the Postal Service Exam in 24 Hours
(Arco, 1998), and Teach Yourself the Civil Service Exam in 24 Hours (Arco, 1998). I have
eight years of full-time experience in all kinds of nonfiction writing and editing, including
developmental, technical, and copy editing. I am interested in both full-length book
projects and shorter assignments, and I will work for royalties or on a work-for-hire
