I am a writer with the ability to write in multi-voices and tones in any genre. Words are my strength and my passion. I have additionally worked as a professional proofreader; co-written, co-directed, and produced an independent award winning horror film; wrote four produced plays; and, wrote a nonfiction novel for my thesis project in graduate school. As a former high school English teacher, I was recognized for detailed and comprehensive curriculum writing, be it for a one-day lesson, a full semester,or school year, or cross-curricular.
I understand that precision, communication, and timeliness are of the utmost importance. I will strive to create and/or polish exactly what you wish for your project to be, and will deliver in the time frame that is right for you.
I work with integrity and without judgment. In other words, there is nothing off-putting that you can request for your product, such as explicit or adult-oriented material.
I understand as well, the importance of voice and tone when it comes to creating a persona for your brand or the style of your book or document. Distinctiveness and originality are valuable. When it comes to fiction and screen play/play writing strengths, my forte is dialog.
I am familiar and understand social media in both content and advertising, especially Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok. I stay up to date with pop culture and trends.
Additionally, I am a professional astrologer who has studied with Chani Nicholas, Adam Sommer, Donna Woodwell, and Benebell Wen. I have a vast knowledge of metaphysical topics, including Reiki, tarot, I Ching, and crystal healing. While I do in person and online astrological reads, I specialize in original comprehensive Natal Chart manuscripts of 50-100 pages in length.
My personal interests other than writing and astrology, include film, big cats, punk, alternative, and rock music, and reading in all genres. I have a particular love of David Sedaris, Anne Lamott, Anne Tyler, Ernst Hemingway, and John Irving, as well as.True Crime and mysteries. For stage and screen, I am drawn to Aaron Sorkin, Tennessee Williams, and Quentin Tarantino. For fun I embroider, create handmade junk journals, collage, and study astrology. I have a plethora of pets, 2 adult daughters, twin grandchildren on the way, and once created and drove an art car.
