Overview

I live and breathe language. That is, when I'm not changing diapers or filling sippy cups. As a write-at-home mom, I am always looking for new opportunities to increase my freelance earnings. In particular, I love those assignments that allow me to be creative.

I am a writer, poet, and journalist with several self-published books and a variety of different publications in print and online. My writing skills range from creative nonfiction to business writing, humor, skits, and radio scripts.
