About me

About 25 years ago I thought I had ruined my life and credit as a result of years of reckless living. Through desperate research and fortunate grace, I discovered some little-known financial techniques and wrote a book called Credit Secrets: How to Erase Bad Credit. My life was transformed when the book won a publishing contest and I became a bestselling author, hitting the talk show circuit and becoming a renowned financial consultant. My most popular book, Life After Debt, sold over 100,000 copies and I was the spokesperson for Capital One Financial based on the success of my book, Identity Theft: How to Protect Your Most Valuable Asset. I also wrote screenplays and adapted books to film and television.

Also known as the guy who gave Cecil B. DeMille his close-up, my film projects include the epic Cecil B. DeMille biopic, titled Hollywood (see www.cbdemille.com) based on my novel, C.B. DeMille: The Man Who Invented Hollywood. I am the author of the bestselling book, Ready When You Are: Cecil B. DeMille’s Ten Commandments for Success, which has transformed countless lives and careers.

In addition to writing books and producing movies, I teach screenwriting and creative writing courses at the introductory and graduate levels. I’ve also provided consulting to hundreds of individuals, business organizations, nonprofit groups, and governmental agencies including the California State Employment Development Department where I developed the online training for Career One Stop Centers based on my book Blockbuster Resumes: Insider Secrets to Dazzle Your Audience and Blow Away the Competition. I’ve appeared on over 300 radio and television talk shows as an expert on a variety of topics including consumer finance, personal achievement, creativity, and Hollywood history.

My most recent books include The Light, a transformational, semi-autobiographical novel about addiction, recovery, spirituality and second chances as well as the companion self-help book, Finding the Light Within: A Spiritual Guide to True Peace, Happiness, Freedom, and Enlightenment, available at www.NewWayPress.com.

As an award-winning writer, producer and bestselling author of over a dozen books, I’m often approached by people who want to know how to get started as a writer. Others want to know how to take their writing careers to the next level.

So now I’d like to help you transform your writing and transform your life. Ready to get started? Whether you’re looking to write a transformational self-help book, memoir, novel, or screenplay, let me know what you’re working on and how you would like me to help. Contact me today:

Ready When You Are,
