I've spent a lot of time writing non-fiction. AllMusic.com is one of the sites I wrote biographies and reviews for over a number of years. I've completed tons of bios, but here are the names of a few people I wrote about that I still remember. Dream, Plus One, Country Dick Montana, Bibi Black, Kristy McNichol, Jason Bonham, Ronnie VanZant, Earthsuit, Lynn Morris, Orli Shaham, Allen Collins, Billy Gilman. If you pop over to Allmusic and type in one of the names above, it'll pull up the bio I wrote.
The bios and reviews have been on many sites, including MTV, VH1, CMT, Amazon.com, Rolling Stone, and many others.
When I stopped doing bios for the first company I worked for, I actually spent a number of months writing greeting cards before I landed my next full-time writing job and went back to writing bios and added writing reviews as well.
Romance writing has always been my favorite and as long as I was doing full-time writing for companies for that steady weekly paycheck, I didn't have anything left over for my romance writing. I'm glad to have put the freelance work behind me for now and to finally be able after so many years to work on my romance novels again. I've even finished a non-fiction book for romance writers, to help them write on those bad days.
Some of the biographies I have written have been published in books by AMG.
