Professional Experience

Relationships, love, and dating are my writing specialties, and I also cover health, nutrition, and lifestyle stories. I've written for national magazines, websites, and newspapers, and I love nothing more than interviewing sharp, quick-witted psychologists, doctors, and experts for service pieces. I wrote a light, fun book about how to survive a breakup in 30 days (The Frisky 30-Day Breakup Guide, 2010, Ulysses Press) and have given expert quotes to newspapers and magazines about such topics as Hugh Hefner's engagement and how to subtly tell a guy you're not interested. I've also appeared on national television and radio programs to talk about dating and breakups. I also have extensive copyediting experience; I can whip copy into shape on a super-tight deadline.
