“Get me Michael P. Naughton… The Professional Writer in Los Angeles”

“I’ll always be a word man/better than a bird man.” — Jim Morrison


I make things happen. I reach people and succeed. I write to entertain, enlighten and edify… and yes, make some money doing what I love.

Michael P Naughton with one of his Top 100 films: “Bullitt”


I am a published mystery author, professional copywriter and voracious reader. I have diverse and professional experience and extensive background in publishing, marketing, pr and copywriting. I’m also a movie fanatic and could debate Quentin Tarantino for hours.

If you are an aspiring author or business owner that needs classic and killer pr, marketing and/or copywriting. I am your man.

I am the real deal.
