My Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, combined with my twenty-plus years in personal and commercial finance, has allowed me to write for various niches in the past nine years. Most recently, I've written an Amazon #1 best-selling, humorous-mystery novel under the name of Harvey Church (Alibi Aficionado). I've written all of Morgan Parker's non-traditional love stories (Textual Encounters, non-friction, Surviving Goodbye, etc.), including this editorial published on risenews (http://risenews.net/2016/07/a-kayak-instructor-and-an-actor-walk-into-a-bar-a-canadian-view-of-the-2016-election/). Living in Canada's high-tech hub, I've had exposure to the startup industry as a member of Communitech (Canada's largest and most-prolific tech startup ecosystem) and have written briefs that help everyday bankers understand high-level concepts like crypto-currency (like bitcoin) as well as basic computing programs like Microsoft Excel. Years ago, in my early days as an online writer, I drafted a series of personal finance and investing articles. These articles led me to write SEO copy for a mattress website and sales copy for a wedding planner's website. Having submitted over one million words per year, I'm clearly passionate about the written word. But writing is more than just "fun." For me, writing is even more than a trade. It's more than a tool. It's an end-product like plumbing or electricity where each word is similar to an piping elbow or electrical switch; using the wrong word means the lights won't go on for my readers.
