Literary Arts

I love to write… about all kinds of things. Travel. Spirituality. Family. Adventure. Relationships. Sustainability. Community. Art & Music. Events. DIY. ALL KINDS OF THINGS! Over the course of this career I’ve carved out, I’ve had the opportunity to do some incredible things. I wrote my first memoir: The Me I Was... Published a second book a couple years later titled Make Yourself Magic… Magazines and newspapers-local and national-have trusted me to write on topics ranging from fashion to spirituality… I even wrote a piece that was read (and read and read and re-read) on QVC! I’ve been contracted to write tour narrations for adventure guide companies and take on their marketing… I’ve ghostwritten a couple of books (shhh! I can’t tell you which ones. That’s why it’s ‘ghost’-ing), and I’ve had the chance to help small businesses tell their stories with newsletters, blog posts, and marketing materials… and recently I made my first forays into editing.

I love this work, deeply. All iterations of it. I can’t get enough. In fact, apparently I so deeply enjoyed the creative self-mutilation; I’m publishing a third book.

What I love most about the roles this work has afforded me, though, is the connections. From subject to writer, interviewee to interviewer, author to reader. I love to tell stories, to make people feel, and that is why I write. It is why I will continue to write, as long as I’m physically able.

If you’d like to read my musings on life, love, cooking, diy experiments, travel, and all other manner of long-form-thought-experiments, subscribe to my blog. If you’d prefer to stick to the funny stories about the sometimes-awkward navigation of my own life, check out Wiser, Wilder, Weirder. Get a little note when I publish something new by subscribing – and tell me what you think!And if you’d like to chat, stay in touch on Facebook. (I tried the other SM networks… I just can’t keep up).
