Service Description

From my first published article in 1986 to the online freelance assignment I completed last night, my writing career has spanned the transition from print to online media. For nearly thirty years, I have written for small weekly newspapers, dailies, monthly magazines, and online publications. I'm fast, but thorough. In 2013, I earned a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction from Goucher College in Baltimore, MD.

I have experience writing SEO copy, such as company blog posts, category pages and product descriptions. I always meet my deadlines, and having taught writing at the college level for six years, I also have excellent grammar and composition skills.

My personal interests include gardening; fiber arts--including spinning, knitting, weaving and felting; sewing, raising livestock; slow food and homeschooling. My older daughter lives in Norway, and I have experience traveling with children.
