Tamworth, Other Canada, Canada

Iíve been around. Iíve sold cucumbers door-to-door; played trombone in a dance band; surveyed the Manistee river flats in Michigan; umpired semi-pro baseball; burned bodies in a crematorium; owned a fine art gallery; run a commercial photography business; conducted a private counselling practice; and given more than 1000 speeches and 75 media appearances on self-help psychology.

Iíve been lost in the woods within shouting distance of our cottage and had to explain why I was so late for supper. I chased raccoons out of my Toronto yard one night in anger and found myself standing in front of the subway station waving an axe in the air. Now my wife and two teenagers and I live in a solar-powered house in the wilds of Ontario with a radio telephone while we farm and I write.

Two days a week I teach Communications at the Queen's School of Business and I'm the Writing Coach for all the undergraduate there. I just can't get enough of being called "Professor". The other days I sit behind my computer at home or work on our farm looking after sheep, pigs, and chickens.

Iím a professional writer and editor with a reputation for quality and flexibility, publishing thousands of words of non-fiction over the last twenty years in Readerís Digest, Chicken Soup for the Baseball Fanís Soul, and several national Canadian publications.

I write a regular column for Kingston Life Magazine called "Moore From The Farm". I've written regular columns for Private Power Magazine, Your Convenience Manager Magazine, The Oakville Beaver and The Milton Champion.

I like say to what I mean. A ďthunderstorm probability situationĒ is rain and ďvitally challengedĒ is dead. I donít like to hide clarity under three-word descriptions when one good word will do. Below are my recent writing credits.

Over the last five years, farming neighbors have told me some startling country stories that have broad appeal. The most vivid of these accounts drive my first novel about a family nearly destroyed then transformed by the power of stories. Where the Stories Live is an inspirational narrative about Chase McKeen and his family fighting a cycle of madness and breaking free from a dying city routine to begin a new life. They risk everything, using rural stories and ancient myths to triumph over death, cruelty, and rural menace. Iím trying to find an agent to represent a novel that doesnít contain car chases, conspiracies, drug shootouts, or lawyers.

Words. The most powerful brand for you and your company. Every ad, every report, every web page. Make sure those words work for you.

Smart people hire experts: doctors for their health, accountants for their finances, and professional writers and editors for their words.
