I am a semi-retired newspaper reporter and editor. I have four novels in print and a fifth novel coming out in 2018. In addition, I am a book reviewer for Readers' Favorite Reviews and I have experience in editing and proofreading. I have 16 years of experience as an energy cost analyst for business and industrial clients. I qualified for my former employer's "President's Club" six times for superior results achieved for clients. I have a Master's of Business Administration degree from Grand Valley State University (2003) in Allendale, Michigan. I enjoy fishing, movies, travel and dining out when I can.
