Professional/Personal Overview
  I'm a freelance adventure writer, editor and ghostwriter with a a cornucopia of quirky clips to showcase my 12-years of experience. I've covered a wild gamut: bank robberies with ensuing high-speed chases, cross-country motorcycle adventures, free dives with sharks, fishing excursions at remote northern outposts and simply must-try crazy cuisine and cocktails. I also write about one of my biggest passions, running. If you need copy to wow your readers or an entire book spruced, goosed and juiced, I'm your gal! Additionally, I teach writing workshops and own and run an independent publishing press, www.wanderinginthewordspress.com.
