Description:
In 1972, after military service and a stint as a secondary school English teacher/football coach, I became a professional entertainer: actor, voice-over performer, singer/songwriter, and stage performer. As such, it has been my job to develop, write, edit, proofread, and update my stage act. I have written press releases and news stories emphasizing and publicizing various aspects of the act. I have written and performed monologs, toasts, introductions and stories as well as numerous songs. This is on-going. In 2006, my patriotic song, "One Nation United", won the Directors' Award at the Nashville International Spring Song and Lyric Competition. The American Legion chose my song "The Flag of Our Fathers" to be the soundtrack of a recruiting film.

I wrote an entertainment column for "Nitelife Magazine" for a number of years in New England.

At one point in time, I was the principal researcher/writer for Apples of Gold (www.wedding-band-ring.com), a custom jewelry firm, and Jewelryignites.com. Until the death of the owner, I wrote news releases for Events in the City, a marketing firm out of New York.

I was a contributing author to "Learning Through History" and "Chicken Soup For the Soul".

I am the co-author of the noted regional history book, "The War Between the States in Wythe County, Virginia".  Commissioned by the town of Wytheville, I wrote, edited, and narrated the acclaimed audiotape, "An Historical Walking Tour of Wytheville, Virginia".

I am one of the authors of "Clean Cabbage in the Bucket and Other Tales from the Irish Music Trenches" - an anthology of non-fiction short stories about life on the Irish Folk Music Circuit over the past four decades.

In September, 2013, I completed a 5-year stint as a researcher/content writer for Remilon, an online company that profiles various academic and vocational education opportunities. My job consisted of researching schools and training programs and writing informative articles about the programs in question. I accomplished these duties in compliance with strict in-house guidelines, which were determined by Remilon and which varied from project to project.

In 2014, I published "Wythe Bane Graham, 8th Virginia Cavalry, CSA: letters and narrative of a son of the Old Dominion"
 
My works in progress include:

"Raiders! - Bennett Young and the Confederate Raid on St. Albans, Vermont -  October 1864"

I have an AB in Social Relations from Harvard with a minor in English. I am a former secondary school English teacher and football coach. I am a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces.

I believe that in every piece of writing, there should be a story told. In this, it is my intention to make everything I write as interesting as possible under the prevailing conditions and to grab and hold the attention of the target audience. Everybody likes a good story. How you tell it is of the essence.
