I've been writing as a freelancer since the '70s. My first paid work was a studio greeting card gag, sold to Gibson, that had a one word punch line: SEKS!

(Please check out my transferred from Squidoo Hubs at David Stone1. I'm hoping they let us get married. We're a perfect match.)

Since then, I've written and sold much more. In addition to an accumulating collection of hubs, I also write for dead tree publications. Most frequently, my work is found in our local Main Street WIRE, where I write all the art reviews and some features, most but not all of them art-related.

My books, however, remain the professional loves of my life.

My first novel, The Garden of What Was and Was Not, was followed by my only nonfiction book, A Million Different Things: Meditations of The World's Happiest Man, a fun romp in the writing. Finally, I just published, Traveling Without a Passport, a sequel to The Garden.

New Note: My wife and I have just released our new, illustrated book about two cats who smuggled their way into a trip to Paris. Travels With George: Paris. The results of an pre-sale campaign were great, even during the slowest season in what is perceived as a bad economy.

For most of the last twenty years, my wife and I have lived happily on Roosevelt Island in New York City with our cats and international neighbors. We travel frequently, especially to Europe.

My wife, Deborah Julian, is a professional photographer and the director of a small, modern art gallery. Her website rounds out our Family Biz: Deborah Julian Photography. She is a member of both Gallery RIVAA, here in New York, and the Etsy community.

As a writer earning a living from his work on line, I am always open to suggestions for back links with any of you having appropriate websites of your own.

        Squidoo Writers Alert: Strike One for HubPages

        3 years ago

        I think I know something about writing articles. I created a new hub yesterday. HubPages took 24 hours before declaring, in one of their mystery messages, that it was of sufficient quality. You know what? It was too...

        Affiliate and Promotional Links Standards

        7 years ago

        It seems strange the rule for affiliate links is the same for every hub. For example, I have a hub with over 2,200 words, plenty of links to other hubs, and after getting a warning going over it numerous times, I...
