I am currently a sportswriter for Advance Media, Alabama Media Group, AL.com and The Birmingham News. I cover everything from Talladega to SEC football…and the personalities, sights and nuances that go along with the world of sports.
I have also had more than 1500 articles published in a variety of magazines and newspapers, and am the author of four books. My newest book on writing will be released in the Summer of 2012. I also speak often at writers conferences, and have taught writing classes at The University of Alabama and UAB.
My articles have appeared in such publications as:
The Birmingham News
Living with Teenagers
The Alabama Baptist
The Upper Room
Leaders for Today
Birmingham Business Journal
and many more!
I write and have written articles on any number of topics.
Entertaining and cooking:
My latest book, Feature Writing: The Professional Guide to Publishing in Magazines, Newspapers, and Online, was just released (2013) by Breeze Hill Books (a writing imprint of Vision Press). The book covers my practical, tried-and-true process for getting published today, and is the perfect resource for writers wanting to get started in the journey toward publication in magazines, newspapers, and online publications.
My book, Writing for Magazines (2007, in its second edition with McGraw-Hill Publishers), is used around the nation by freelance writers and in college nonfiction writing courses; it also was a Featured Selection of the Writer’s Digest Book Club.
I’m also the author or co-author of Masterpieces of Reporting (Vision Press, 1997), A Life that Matters (New Hope Publishers, 2002), and Faith Stories (WMU Publishers, 2000).
