Comments from the author about writing: I have self-published three novels in my retro-styled and G-rated Eddie Atomic space adventure series: 2009's Shake, Rattle & Rocket!, 2012's Ghost Saucers In the Sky!, and 2016's Stratosphere Boogieman. All feature "two-fisted scientist" Eddie Atomic, genius glamour-girl robot Kioko, youthful, plucky pilot Spunky, and wise veteran advisor Commander Augustus McGuffin.
I wrote a regular Pin Up America column, "In the Spotlight," for about two years. For some six years before that, I was the CD Review Editor for Rockabilly Magazine.
My freelance music articles and reviews have appeared in Goldmine, No Depression, Blue Suede News, Rock & Rap Confidential, and others.
National/international political essay credits include Daily Caller, Counterpunch, American Thinker, Dissident Voice, the Huffington Post, and USA Today.
I've also written numerous newspaper opinion pieces on political topics, with credits including the Des Moines Register, Waterloo Courier, Marshalltown Times-Republican, Iowa City Press Citizen, and Cedar Falls Times.
Too, I served as Iowa Coordinator for Ralph Nader's 2004 independent campaign, a position that included writing duties. I also served as the Iowa Green Party Media Coordinator from 2000 - 2004.
And in 2016, I wrote several Iowa newspaper think-pieces promoting the Donald Trump campaign.
