The Daring & Secret Lives of Naval Aviator John Rodgers
On the literary side, nearly forty years ago I spun my creativity full-time into the writing business, freelancing for magazines (more adventure than money) and business clients (more money than adventure), slaved as the editor-in-chief of a national, full-color slick magazine, and wrote campaign speeches for free. As a result, I tend to measure my writing credits by the pound.
I then dovetailed my art and design education with my hard-won publishing skills to form a company providing small publishers with writing, editing, design, and production services. This later morphed into literary representation for an exclusive group of exceptional authors.
Along the way I delivered all-day writing seminars, spoke at writers conferences, taught writing classes, directed writing conferences, and appeared in the international writing documentary, “Scribes.” I continue to reach out to writers at numerous workshops and conferences each year.
