My first language is English and I have been writing full-time online since February 1996, over 18 years at the time of writing in early 2014.
In that time I have written thousands of pages of web content for hundreds of satisfied clients in dozens of countries on every continent (except Antarctica).
I am also a freelance journalist on occasion, and from 1998 to 2008 I wrote a weekly column for a newspaper. They have recently asked me to start writing my weekly column again, and I have accepted.
In the 1990s I co-authored three print books with the manager of a museum.
