I’m Tom Parker (aka Thomas Trebitsch Parker), and writing is not a hellish experience for me. In fact, I’ve made a career of it, and of helping people tell their stories and express themselves on the page, in video and film, and at the podium.
As a writer of speeches and executive presentations for dozens of corporations, a New York Times best-selling author and memoirist, a former Stanford writing instructor, and a prize-winning, Pulitzer Prize-nominated novelist and short fiction writer, I can help you get your story on the page and make it memorable.
