It took Nigel some thirty years to decide that perhaps his High School English teacher had been right all along: writing, not calculus, was his true passion. So, after a long and moderately successful career in industry Nigel decided to venture out as a professional writer. But what to write?

Aspiring wordsmiths are always told, “Write what you know,” so his first task was to find out what that was.

Twenty years in the automotive industry, and a love of all things car-related provided part of the answer. A career spanning car dealerships to car assembly, component manufacturing to research and development, meant a huge well of experience to draw from. Throw in a car restoration hobby and it was obvious. So today Nigel concentrates on automotive topics that range from “How To” maintenance and buying guides to car reviews. Most of these are in the 400 – 600 word range, though he goes longer if needed.

One hallmark of an engineer is the ability to research and quickly assimilate information. Nigel has a talent for not only doing that, but for communicating complex technical and scientific topics to the non-technical layperson. As a result, he also writes on manufacturing, technology and management topics, ranging from fabrication to water treatment, by way of centrifugal casting and robotics.

A side benefit of his career was the many travel opportunities that arose. Not everyone relishes seeing new places, but Nigel loved the insights these trips provided into distant lands and on his return would write reviews of the what he’d seen, eaten and done. So today Nigel also writes the occasional travel piece, typically hotel reviews, but covers restaurants and museums too. So if you need travel articles, consider him for those.

“Write what you know,” and “Follow your passion.” Two pieces of advice that Nigel has taken to heart and seem to be serving him well.
