I am currently working on two insurance books (one on resolving coverage and claims disputes and another on the correct intent of the ISO CGL property exclusions) and three non-insurance books (one on time management, one on presentation skills, and one I’m plugging below). Subscribe to my blog (on the right sidebar) or follow me on Twitter to find out when these projects will be available on Amazon and elsewhere.

My ebook 52 of the Greatest Things Anyone Ever Said…and Why has gone live on Amazon and in 24 hours has become Amazon’s #1 New Release in the Quotational Reference book category. This ebook includes 52 of my favorite quotations, each with a brief essay about what the quotation means. While the ebook can be read in its entirety and in any order, it is designed so that each quotation and essay is read weekly over the course of the coming year and it can be accessed right from your phone or tablet.

BONUS! Purchasers of this book get a free PDF download of my book “QuoteNotes: The Ultimate Quotational Reference System and Authoring Tool for Professional Speakers and Writers” endorsed by Zig Ziglar and Brian Tracy. This is an indexed and cross-referenced compilation of my 1,500 favorite quotes and includes a section on how to use quotations in your speaking and writing.

NEWS FLASH: My new book is now available and currently discounted on Amazon at $19.69 with free Prime shipping!

White Papers

Over the years I have written and published dozens of white papers. I have a few ideas in mind for projects, but if you have any issues you’d like to see a white paper (50 pp. or less) on, let me know.


I have no idea of the exact count, but I’m pretty sure I’ve published several thousand articles over the years. I will continue to do that on this web site. Shorter articles will likely be published as blog posts and longer articles will be available as PDF downloads or white papers. If you want to reprint or otherwise distribute an article or white paper, feel free to contact me.

I  am not actively seeking writing projects, but I have been contacted recently about providing newsletter content for agents and for their customers. My fee for article production is $1.00 per word if I choose the topic and there is no regular deadline for such articles. The fee for assigned topics or regular deadlines is $1.50 per word. For articles of 1,000 words or more that typically take at least a full day to write, my flat fee is usually $1,500 but may be reduced as low as $1,000 if multiple articles are contracted.

I have been asked if blog posts (see below) can be reprinted without attribution. At least for now, I’m granting that permission for a fee of $0.25 per word. If you would like a Word document that lists most of my blog posts with word counts and type of article, email me.


My main form of communication will be the blog on this web site. As the definition of “commentary” implies, most of my blog posts will coverage explanations or opinions on industry issues.

Com•men•tar•y … an expression of opinions or offering of explanations

Unless indicated otherwise on a blog post, these posts may be reprinted without express permission if done so in accordance with the Reprint guidelines on the “Legal” page on this web site.

Note: If you want a Word document listing of all blog posts to date that includes links to the articles, category (CL, PL, Other), and word count, just email me.
