Overview

Creative, passionate, attentive and detail-oriented, dedication to craft and client.

As a writer, it is my job to paint the world with beautiful words, a language distinctively me, though with your audience in mind. I believe in creating, evoking emotion through words, so that when a reader has completed perusing my work he/she can say not only was it well written but also relatable. I will take your project/request and, through a combination of client-centered interaction, acute observation and attention to detail, and refined creativity...

Service Description

Some writers learn how to express themselves through the written word, a process, even an investment, that may take years of study and practice. Then there are those writers who are born knowing how words fit together, how they flow and make connections. I am just such a writer as that.

My love of words began much earlier than the moment I first picked up a pen and crafted my first story - it first began with books. At age 10, 11, and 12 I took first places in County creative writing contests. At age 14, my work was published in the children's magazine, Stone Soup. From age 16 to 18, I wrote a weekly column for my hometown newspaper the Sand Mountain Reporter, and my love for journalism was born. I earned a degree in English with a minor in Journalism and worked for my college public relations department, writing press releases. During that time, I did freelance work for the Demopolis Times and the Perry County Herald (closed in 2010). I completed a four month, full-time paid internship with the Sand Mountain Reporter my junior year of college and was the recipient of a $1500 Alabama Press Association grant.

My professional career involves working as a crime reporter for the Fort Payne-Times Journal and a general assigment reporter for the Selma Times-Journal. In 2007, I accepted a position with my alma mater, and made a career change to the academic side of communications. I worked as the Web Editor and Marketing Specialist. My responsibilities involved working...
