My writing career started as a child, when I used to type out my own newspaper in my bedroom closet and pen my own (poorly written) poems. Ive been writing and editing professionally for 16 years, a career thats brought me from the basement of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (where I worked for Stagebill magazine) to the hallowed halls of the Kiplinger Washington Editors to my own home in Florida, where I now work on a freelance basis. Ive interviewed celebrities (Gwyneth Paltrow, Tori Spelling, Tim Gunn), business owners, artists, interior decorators, athletes, professors, and chefs while working on stories about topics ranging from cooking and home decorating to marketing and green building. I know the right questions to ask to craft a story thats interesting, lively, insightful, and well written. And my years spent working as an editor mean that I turn in copy thats clean and grammatically correct (and can help clients edit the work of other writers as well). If youre in need of a freelance writer or editor, Id love to discuss how I can address those needs.
