Professional/Personal Overview
  An accomplished author with experience in social expression product, children's books, novelty books, and educational storybooks, I've also written for greeting cards, magazines, online advertisements, and more. My writing is known for its warmth, authenticity, and (as appropriate) humor.

I particularly specialize in children's literature, along with emotion-driven articles, essays, and quotes. A thorough researcher, I'm comfortable writing on an array of topics--from parenting and families to modern psychology and the environment. I'm passionate about quality and creativity and have a collaborative style that helps me consistently meet and exceed my clients' needs.

Member of The North Carolina Writers' Network and The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
