About Me

I have been producing interesting content (print and new media) for a very wide range of businesses and organizations for more than 35 years, both as a full-time staff writer and on a freelance basis (Shelton & Associates) I specialize in business writing of all types, but primarily business plans and major proposals, including multi-million dollar federal grant proposals.

Magazine articles I’ve written for clients have appeared in Time, U.S.News & World Report, Newsweek, Good Housekeeping, Sports Illustrated, Forbes, and other national and regional publications. My by-lined articles have appeared in M.D.News (Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky) and Independent Living Magazine (national). My experience is extremely diverse.
