Professional Experience

I have three passions: reading, writing, and helping others tell their stories. I have spent my twenty-year career doing just that. A published best-selling novelist (HarperCollins) and memoir writer, I hope to share my writing, editing, teaching, and content creation expertise with others to help them achieve their desired results. I offer a host of creative storytelling, content creation, ghostwriting, editing, and writing assistance services.
