In 2014, Mike Selby, a service-disabled veteran, started a new version of his own writing company to help other businesses realize their marketing goals and enhance their communication programs. This was the first step in realizing a lifelong ambition of becoming a professional writer. Although the company is a freelancing service, Mike also writes fiction for publication, and uses both endeavors to hone his skills as a “scrivener.” He works with all types of businesses, but has an affinity for working with small business. Mike Selby Freelancing, LLC, has become a special advocate for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) and has assisted them with certification through the Small Business Administration. The company has also assisted small business owners and leaders register for, and seek, US Government grant and contract opportunities. When not writing, Mike enjoys running (without anything chasing him), “manly gardening,” friends and family, and old films. Mike lives “the writer’s life” in the Kansas City, Kansas area.
