Life circumstances had taken me down the corporate path; however, passion continuously jerks me back to the writing world. My curiosity and fascination find me in the area of human interest while frolicking in the lives of those around us. I write with a big heart and a lot of humor (where appropriate) because I find that those are the things that make you human and keep you sane.

I am a freelance writer and typist looking for projects to work in conjunction with the book that I am writing. I have over 15 years of copywriting and business writing experience as well as fiction and non-fiction experience. I am detail oriented and able to return your project in a timely manner (based on the realistic time frame of your project).


Responsible, focused, goal and results oriented professional looking to further my career by utilizing my creativity, skills and experience and embracing my thirst for writing! Accustomed to working in a fast paced and high pressured environment while informing and entertaining the world around us.
