About Richard


Bio

Words are a cornerstone of our civilization. Knowing how to effectively use them in writing and speaking will give you an advantage over the vast majority who don't. Whether it's writing scholarly papers, books, magazine articles, blogs, applications and grant proposals, or speeches, you are going to learn from someone who knows the ropes, with 40 years as a professional writer and editor.

Words are a cornerstone of our civilization. Knowing how to effectively use them in writing and speaking will give you an advantage over the vast majority who don't. Whether it's writing scholarly papers, books, magazine articles, blogs, applications and grant proposals, or speeches, you are going to learn from someone who knows the ropes, with 40 years as a professional writer and editor. You will learn how to write precisely and to the point, plus when and how to be clever. You and the dictionary will become good friends, along with the AP Style Book and Chicago Manual of Style.

I've been a substitute teacher, school board member, guest college lecturer, prize winning public speaker, best selling author, ghost writer, book editor, magazine editor and copy editor.

As a history honors graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, I will help you research, learn and understand Texas, United States, Latin American, European, Russian, and Middle Eastern history.

A multidisciplinary historian, I study geology, weather, geography, flora, fauna and ethnic folkways, including the medicinal and food uses of native plants.

I have studied Spanish since third grade through college; lived and worked in Mexico; and maintained a bilingual household for 28 years.

You will find me to be reasonably priced and see positive, tangible results from our work together.
