I am the author of five published books, a journalist and editor, the founder of two award-wining magazines — L.A. Style and  — and a co-founder of the L.A. Weekly newspaper.
For more than a decade, it has been my privilege and pleasure to work with writers
— from beginners to accomplished authors. In workshops and private sessions,
I have guided clients from rough draft through polished manuscript,  and seen them find agents, publish stories and grow into fine writers.
