A long night of term paper writing and vodka.

A long night of term paper writing and vodka.

Today, I write fiction and social commentary, but for more than a decade, I wrote term papers and essays on a wide range of topics, including accounting, business, criminal justice, technology, and many others. Despite writing thousands of research papers, I consider them the worst of my writing and desire never to read term papers – ever. Sometimes I discuss term paper writing in my bios, and those discussions link to these papers. I also have no use for these papers, so I thought posting them might help anyone needing course assistance. Please do not ask me about papers unless you buy my books and give me a good review, just kidding! Maybe.

Please feel free to use my papers, but do not copy and paste them as your own because they are copyright protected. You may quote them in papers and on webpages but please link back. All papers are keyworded by subject. Use the search bar at the top of the site to search for your topic. Thanks.
