Journalist and Writer


Bill & ColeyI began my career writing features for the St. Petersburg Times. Since then, I have written a variety of human interest stories and essays.

Authors that have had a major influence on me include Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville, Joseph Conrad, Leo Tolstoy, Willa Cather, Thomas Wolfe and Somerset Maugham. Of course, I have a long list of favorites including my good friend, screen writer and novelist Harry Petrakis.

Art is  a passion of mine–many of my dearest friends are artists–as is the study of history.

A dedicated conservationist, I am also an avid outdoorsman.

As an experienced journalists with in-depth knowledge in a broad range of topics I accept freelance assignments.

    Great portfolio of feature stories, all brought to life through insightful examination of the human element.

    Having met Bill through an Artist, teacher and friend of mine, immediately I found a man who was very easy to talk to, had a beautiful balance within his personality. We worked together on a six foot statue of John the Baptist that turned out wonderfully. I would not want anyone else to write a story for me. His honesty, skill and caring makes him a very honorable man. He is an asset to his profession.
