About Me

Hi, I’m Gary, your personal guide to honing your superpower and earning a darn good living with it too.

GarysFacebookPictIIMake no mistake, writing is a superpower. Writing transcends time and space. It moves people to laugh and cry and spend money. Writing builds nations and empires. It commands armies. Writing creates fortunes…and, if you know how, writing will set you free.

When I was a teenager, I remember reading a book about the freedom of a writer’s life and thinking that was what I wanted. Later I finished college with a BA in English and got my first job which required a lot of writing. Sadly, for too many years, I shuffled from one job to another, earning whatever they’d pay me.

During the day, I wrote for work. At night, I wrote novels and dreamed of being a bestseller. That dream sustained me through rough times and years of rejection letters.

Eventually, thanks to Amazon, I self-published my first novel Some Glad Morning. Sales were less than spectacular. Not only did it not earn money, it cost me thousands for professional editing and design services. These services were worth every penny, but they left me in debt to family and friends.

Then, I stumbled on a blog post that said copywriters who specialize in sales letters are among the most highly paid of all professionals. That got my attention and I committed to learning that skill. It turns out, it’s a lot easier to write a sales letter than a novel.

During the time I was learning these skills, I found an article about writing as a superpower. It took a little while for the true value of my writing skill to sink in, but when it did, I instantly had more confidence. All those years I wrote in obscurity suddenly didn’t seem like a waste. On the contrary, that time seemed like the ideal preparation for a brilliant writing career.

Once I accepted my superpower, more opportunities presented themselves, like how to really make money on the Internet. If you’re a writer or want to be, the Internet was made for you.

The Internet multiplies your superpower a thousand fold. As a writer, you have a tremendous advantage. There truly is no limit to how much you can earn on the Internet, but you have to know what you’re doing. You need proper training and support. You’ll find all you need at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s free to join.

Wealthy Affiliate has been an absolute blessing for me. In addition to training and support, it’s an uplifting community. Although I like being alone to write, I really enjoy the friendly encouragement I’ve gotten from Wealthy Affiliate.

If you would like to join me within Wealthy Affiliate, you can register here for a FREE Starter Membership. This is where I network with others and offer my help each and every day.

My writing career is both full and rewarding. I still write novels, but I also write copy and blog posts. Sure, I work hard, but I love it. Most of all, I’m in control of my life. I get to spend my time the way I want. When I’m not writing or hanging out on Wealthy Affiliate, I’m playing with the rescue cats and dogs that share my home, reading, playing guitar (badly), working out (also badly) or backpacking through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Life is good.

I work from home every single day. My ambition is to show you how you can do the same thing and earn a darn good living too.

Writing is indeed a superpower. If you accept your power and commit to using it for good, your writing can create the life of your dreams.

I’m here to help. Feel free to contact me through the comments below. Also, when you join Wealthy Affiliate you can private message me there. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Hi Gary,

    Great to ‘meet’ you – the profile you’ve presented is excellent.

    I share your passion for writing and have ventured often over the years to complete a novel and at times have written many thousands of words toward that goal. However, incomplete they lay in wait.

    I shall return here from time to time as I am interested to read your content and witness the development of this site.

    Wishing you Health, Happiness and Success.

    Blessings Be –

    – Rich

    • Thank you Rich! I appreciate your interest. I hope you’ll pick up your novel manuscript again. It’s a lot of work, for sure, but clearly you have a story to tell. All the best…

  2. Hi there Gary,

    Just wanted to commend you on your website. It is quite clean and organized. I see that you are from SC. I used to work in Charleston for Kiawah Island. Your story is quite inspiring and I am happy for you. I trust that you are having good success in your life.

    Thank you for writing here and keep on inspiring generations to come!

    Best,
    Jason.

  3. Hi Gary! I think I would be coming back often to your site as I am building the contents of my site. This is a very good help! Thank you!

  4. Hi Gary,
    I am a fellow member of Wealthy Affiliate. That is where I met you and fell in love with your writing style. I have also viewed your website and admire the way you have laid it out. I thank you for giving my site a look and giving me some valuable suggestions and tips that I am in the process of following.

    I have been laid up with a very bad cold for over two weeks and just now feeling like getting back to my site. Since I was just partially through with my site, I have decided to take a few day and review the course from the beginning and get a running re-start into finishing it. I understand you never get a site completed. I came back to your site to get inspired.

    I want to thank you for taking your valuable time to help me. I hope to get to the point where I can help others eventually.

    I wish you the best in you life’s goals.

    • Hi Luther,

      Thanks so much for your kind words. Writing is a lonely profession and I’m never sure how my writing is received.

      I’m sorry you were sick but glad you’re feeling better. I’m always available to help you.

      Thanks again. Your comment made my day.

      All the best,
      Gary
