My love of writing and the written word started at a very early age. I attribute this to the work of my father, who read to me every night, starting with the children’s standards but rapidly progressing to “Watership Down” and “The Lord of the Rings.” I think this is a gift that will never be repaid.
After reading thousands of non-fiction and fiction works and returning to college for writing and literature classes, I finally achieved a life goal to write my own books. I have since made these available on Amazon.
I have written 3 books thus far.
The Peaceful Patriot was my first non-fiction work. It is a 10,000 word pamphlet that examines the false logic used by propagandists to call for war.
Think! is my most popular book. It is a short text that makes rhetoric and critical thinking accessible to anyone. I don’t know if it makes the social media experience any easier – our Facebook feeds are so rife with really bad examples of critical thinking. 🙂
Micro-Fundraising is my response to the high-cost, low-return “fundraising” tools available for small non-profit and charity groups. It describes a proven process to raise 10’s of thousands of dollars for a worthy cause that is short on time and money.
I have started my next book, which discusses online nonprofit marketing. It will discuss how to create an effective nonprofit website that generates donors and volunteers, how to apply for and use a Google grant that provides 120K a year of advertising for nonprofits, and how to use social media effectively. Frankly, the book is moving slowly for lack of time. I hope to complete it at some point in 2017.
I also publish various blogs. Check out the blog page on this website for some of my favorite articles.
