A writer? Other works

"So what do you do?" It's a simple question I've heard time and time again. I cherish the look I get when I answer, "I'm a writer." Inevitably, the next question is this: "You're a writer? Would I have read your work? It depends. I've published lots of stuff over the years. Here's a sample listing:

Authored and published more than 500 news and feature articles in a variety of fields for newspapers, consumer magazines, journals, newsletters, and produced a weekly column for a mid-sized daily newspaper. Areas of recent focus include B2B, health care, travel, personalities, community issues, and boating. Select portfolio accomplishments include:
