Service Description

After more than a decade in tv news and promotion, I mommy-tracked myself and started freelance writing from home. I've written news stories, web articles, blog posts, style books, press releases, press kits, TV and radio commercials. I've won an Emmy and International Telly award for my copywriting. I worked in a newsroom for more than a decade, so I know how to craft the kind of press release that will get you noticed. I enjoy learning all I can about a subject, then breaking it down in a way that is fresh and easy to understand. Put my writing skills to work for your next project.

Here are just some of the services I can provide for your company:

Press Releases
Press Kits
Blog Posts
Newsletters
News stories/articles
TV/Radio commercial scripts
