I have edited and published the automotive website theweeklydriver.com since 2004. It features new and vintage car reviews, videos and automotive news.

After eight of my 13 years attending and reporting on the Tour de France, I co-authored the book Tour De France For Dummies in 2005.

I have also written three e-books, The Tour Within The Tour de France, How To Make A Living As A Freelance Writer & Publicist and How To Run And Enjoy The Marathon.

My books are available on Amazon.com via the hyperlinked titles.
