About Me

Professional Experience

Everyone has a story inside them. Maybe it's time to tell yours.

I've been copywriting for years but only in the second half of my life did I begin to write fiction. In the last fifteen years while editing, I've been honing my craft and, as a result, also helping others hone theirs. I'm going to write more books about writing, do a few workshops, and a host few webinars. 

Follow my blog, where I'll share writing tips, and if you need additional help, every year I accept a limited number of clients.

We should work together. Shoot me a message today!

I've been married forever.
