I'm a writer. That's a good start. I'm also the Founder & Executive Director of Broadleaf Writers Association. Books I've written are: Anointed: The Passion of Timmy Christ, CEO, Flutter: An Epic of Mass Distraction and The Weight of Ashes (July 2021). I've done plenty of media (Google is your friend there) and been nominated for awards. I'm here to help writers realize their dreams (and yes, an income is always handy!), so know I'll be an eager advocate for your work. Areas of interest/expertise include: Fiction, MG & YA, Fantasy. Developmental editing is my focus (story, characters, world building, story beats, etc), but I'm up for a deep dive as well.
