About Me

I am a veteran print, digital and broadcast writer who tells stories about the things that matter in people's lives. 

My writing experience includes stories about food, home decor, interesting people, pets, matters of faith, small business success, personal finance and more. I am skilled at taking a topic and creating crisp, understandable copy around it that the reader will enjoy.

Let me live, love and say it well in good sentences.         ~Sylvia Plath
