Take your writing to the next level
I've spent 30 years making a living as the author of seven non-fiction books, three of which were optioned for TV or films, one became a major motion picture. As a working writer, I've also had two original screenplays optioned, worked on scripts for several major studios and am working on new scripts and non-fiction book projects. I have been an editor at three national magazines, am the author of several dozen magazine cover stories and hundreds of feature articles. On my journey, I've been lucky to have several incredible mentors who made a major impact on my professional life. I know how important that can be. No matter where you are as a writer, I'd be happy to assist you in navigating the next steps in your journey.

I've been following Steve's work since his days at Movieline and Playboy. He has a unique voice that's fun and sophisticated at the same time. When we had a chance to work together, he was a solid pro and I learned much from him. He's a natural teacher.
