I believe in the power of words. They can help us share ideas, deliver information, evoke emotions, sway opinions, and strengthen communities. When you choose the right words, your message is more powerful and more influential. Whatever your message, I can help you to get it out there loud and clear.
As a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader of non-fiction, I can provide the right words for you, or help you to polish your own words until they shine! I have experience with books, magazine articles, journal articles, websites, newsletters, corporate publications, and more.
I work with professional associations, non-profits, businesses and authors to help them produce professional and effective publications, websites, marketing materials, press releases and more.
My book-length writing projects include:
Sex in a Tent: A Wild Couple's Guide to Getting Naughty in Nature (Wilderness Press, 2007)
Moon: Living Abroad in New Zealand (Avalon Travel Publishing, 2008-2015) 1st, 2nd & 3rd editions
