I write for business and pleasure

I'm the president of CorporateHistory.net, which serves business clients with book writing, speechwriting, oral history, editing, and publishing services. Most recently I authored The Clorox Company: 100 Years, 1000 Reasons. My award-winning trade books include The Perilous Journey of the Donner Party. I lead writing workshops and coach aspiring authors. My roots in Italy and writing run deep; I really do resemble the 2,000-year-old fresco from Pompeii featured here.
