I started writing through being a manufacturing engineer. Part of my job required that I write procedures and proposals. Since leaving engineering, I have become a full-time writer. To date, I have completed 87 books, between my own titles and those written as a freelancer. In addition, I have a personal web site of over 500 pages, where over 35,000 people a month come for teachings on a number of subjects and a personal blog with over 4,000 visitors per month.

Because of my technical background, I concentrate on writing about technical subjects, business and the building trades. I find that I can write better when I concentrate on subjects where I have practical experience.

Specialties

Technical writing, copy writing for web sites, books

Interests

The Bible, marriage and family issues, woodworking, business, home repair, tools, all types of do-it-yourself projects, mechanics and of course, writing.

Education

University of Colorado at Denver

Although I worked for 15 years as an engineer, I never earned my degree. I was promoted to engineer based upon my work "above and beyond the call of duty" as a production technician. It was only then that I decided to study engineering. However, I gave up my studies, realizing that what I was learning had little to do with my job.

Adame Seminary

This is an honorary doctorate I was awarded at the same time I received my Masters Degree. I was totally flabbergasted! While I had in mind working towards my doctorate, I wasn't expecting to receive it at that time. This degree is based upon the 52 books and other writings I had done to that date.

Adame Seminary

Studies completed on the Bible, biblical history, church history, marriage & family, biblical application to daily life

Construction

250 Projects Completed

Wrote an entire web site (150+ pages) of how to build your own home. Additionally I have written many articles for construction companies, specifically remodeling and HVAC, explaining why to do certain things. I also write remodeling how-to articles regularly for a number of web sites.

Relationships

100 Projects Completed

I have written a large amount on marriage, being romantic, and sexual health. All of my marriage and relationship advice is done from a Biblical perspective, although I don't always quote the Bible. I will not write on dating or how to seduce a woman. I also have a daily blog, called "Romantic Act of the Day" where I give romance and relationship advice to men.

Manufacturing

100 Projects Completed

I worked 15 years as a manufacturing engineering, first for a medical equipment manufacturer, then for a transit bus manufacturer, so I am familiar with many types of manufacturing

Hardware

90 Projects Completed

As a former manufacturing engineer, I am knowledgeable about tools and hardware especially tools. I am especially strong on woodworking tools as that is a hobby of mine, along with home improvement.

Education

50 Projects Completed

I write op-ed pieces about problems with the educational system; how to help your child succeed in school; ways to improve the educational system. I am also very strong in writing training material for industry.

Kids/Family

50 Projects Completed

As part of the missions work that I do, I have given a number of seminars on child raising. So, I suppose that I should warn you, all my child raising material is written from a Biblical perspective. Within that perspective, I can provide quality content.

Auto

41 Projects Completed

Basically, the automotive writing which I have done has been dealing with automotive repair, tools & equipment. I am not good at writing automotive reviews or reviews of specific accessories.

Humor

40 Projects Completed

I enjoy writing humor most of all. There's something very satisfying about being able to create something that makes people laugh. I have a daily blog, called "Daily Satire" on Blogspot, where I write a short satire every day. I find that satire is a great format for making fun of life. I also wrote a column called "The Insurance Lady" which was an Ann Landers type column, except giving humorous insurance advice.

Electronics

20 Projects Completed

I was a manufacturing engineer, with a predominantly digital electronics background. Therefore, I write technical articles on manufacturing of electronics; there's lots of other people who write about gadgets, so I don't bother

Non Profit

12 Projects Completed

I have run two different small non-profit organizations, one a missions organization and the other a ministerial alliance. As part of this, I had to promote the organizations and write grants.

Article

500 Projects Completed

Manufacturing, logistics, home building, do-it-yourself, marriage & family, photography, industry
