Writers are not supposed to use clichés but Time Flies When You Are Having Fun fits my life. I’ve been a full-time freelance writer for over a decade and I have the best job in the world!

My writing journey began in the early 2000s when I penned an 80,000-word novel. But no one would touch it as I had no writing credibility; I hadn’t written for my high school newspaper or even taken a writing class in university. I certainly hadn't published anything. So I set out to amass writing credits. I started by writing newspaper articles. When one of my pieces appeared in the National Post, I knew it was time to expand.

I turned my focus to writing articles for magazines, a more lucrative and expansive market. My work has appeared in WestWord, Journeys West, Opulence, Hockey News: Fully Loaded, REM - The Real Estate Magazine, Acreage Life, The Cottager, Cottage, Cottage Life, Alberta Parent Quarterly, Luxury Lifestyle Living Magazine, City Probe, Celtic Heritage, and Living Safety, among others. I also published hundreds of articles and pieces online.

Along the way I developed a niche doing travel writing, an adventure that has taken me around the globe. I’ve stayed in fabulous places, locations that would typically only be a dream on a writer’s salary. I developed another niche editing fellow writer’s manuscripts, something I still enjoy and do regularly.

While I continue to pen magazine articles, writing e-books has become my new writing love. Even after 39 e-books, the thrill of publishing a book that becomes available to the world less than 24 hours later is addictive. A few of my favourite e-books are shown below.

I love to hear from my fans and from other writers. Feel free to contact me with any questions or thoughts. I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best to you,
Toby
