As an author and a Certified Public Accountant, I understand your world as a writer, editor or self-published author as well as the world of business and taxes. I see myself as an interpreter who can help authors and writers understand the sometimes confusing language of the business world and the Internal Revenue Service.

My goal is to present clear information on unclear topics.

I do that through my book, Business Tips and Taxes for Writers (part of the Information in a Nutshell Series), website and seminars. I hope you find the information I share helpful, but perhaps you need specific advice for your situation.

I offer private consulting in several areas:

  • Business Consultation: Pre-arranged phone call to discuss your business plan, business structure, questions you have or issues related to your writing and publishing business.
  • Tax Consultation: A pre-arranged phone cal to discuss your unique tax situation, allowable deductions, favorable business structures for tax purposes and how to reduce your taxes, legally.
  • Tax Review: A review of your previously-prepared tax return. This service may be used in conjunction with a tax consultation.

Price: $75 per hour pro-rated for partial hours.

I am available to present a workshop for your group followed by 15 minute individual consultations for your members or attendees. Please email me for details on price and travel arrangements.

I am unable to accept new clients for income tax preparation at this time. Instead I recommend that you find a local CPA familiar with self-employed people to assist your in preparing your tax return.
