Hello and welcome!
So far in my life I’ve been (and still am) many things: aspiring paleontologist, house painter, amateur knitter, avid reader, tree climber, gardener, accomplished pie maker. At this point in my professional life I am predominantly a writer and editor, and I’m also on the verge of launching a career as an acupuncturist. I’ve written poetry, fiction, magazine features, and am currently in the last stages of rewriting Rue’s Crossings, a YA novel. Through the myriad of genres I’ve dabbled in, I’ve been fortunate to receive a few awards and have a number of pieces published.
I adore the written word. I love poetry for how the words can twist and dance and give rise to the most amazing images and emotions in the reader. I love fiction for the characters I meet and the stories that whisk me into a myriad of different worlds. And I love journalism and non-fiction for the opportunity it gives me (both reading and writing it) to meet incredible people and commit their experiences to paper to share with the world.
The most important things in life to me are love, family and good friends, books upon books, enjoying the abundance of food that surrounds me, being kind, growing tiny green things every spring, my cats, seeing the beauty in each day, and supporting creativity in myself and those around me.
I do work freelance, so if you’re interested in any of the services I provide, head over to the appropriate tab and send me an email or message if you have any questions.
May your day be filled with beauty, and simple comforts and joys. xo
