About Me: I am a former teacher, coach, YMCA administrator, business owner and paralegal. This unique skill set serves me well in writing on a variety of subjects for children and their parents.

I am accustomed to working on assignments with editors and enjoy that give and take, but am equally comfortable working independently. I am very responsive to deadlines, have editing and proofreading experience and am actively seeking freelance work.

Current Projects: 5-part series on organization for Kiki magazine, 3 e-books for FairyTales and Dreams Publishers, holiday money saving tips for Sprinkles, and a picture book.
Writing Specialties: Middle-grade mysteries, picture books, pre-school activity verses, teaching units and activities, how-to articles for 'tweens, teens, and parents, pre-school fiction and verse, holiday fiction, hobbies, and general non-fiction for 'tweens and teens.
