FIND OUT Where Smokey Joe Was born!

The name "Smokey Joe" was started by several listeners to The Morning Wrap on WTKE sports talk radio in Fort Walton Beach.

In addition to various genres of fiction and non-fiction (see "Southern Fried Cash" section for an example of my non-fiction portfolio), I provide customized writing services, including career transition preparation.

I can work with you to develop a resume that will tell employers the story of you. I develop custom (job-specific) cover letters and will even provide in-depth interview preparation including developing the skills necessary to make the critical good first impression and to negotiate the salary you want - and deserve!

The process is simple:

  1. The resume and cover letter get you the interview,
  2. The interview gets you the offer, and
  3. The negotiation gets you the lifestyle you want!

Voted one of Thumbtack's Best of 2015!

" experience with Joe has been nothing less [than] amazing!"

"I applied for a...position using your resume and cover letter; I received a call requesting an interview within an hour. That's a record!"
