about me

(09/03/2018 – This page is a work in progress as I build out my new website; please be patient while it’s under construction.)

My lifelong love of reading and writing – and the support and encouragement of a couple of online communities – has led me to this point: where I’m finally brave enough to write books (I’m working on my first fiction AND nonfiction).

Being in these online communities has birthed the desire (and courage) to get published, so I’m immersing myself in that process.

I still have a full-time day job, so the book-writing process has to be squeezed into night and weekend hours.

It’s totally worth the long, exhausting hours I put in each week.

On top of that, I’m reviving my freelance editing business, so I thought a blog dedicated to writing and editing was in order. (I have two other blogs and, yep, I’m cray-cray. Only one of them has fresh content, though.)

I’m working on a “Let’s work together” page, and that’s where I’ll post my 30-plus years of editing experience. It, too, is a page under construction. But at some point, you just have to stick a fork in it and call it done. The website went live in late August 2018 as I resisted the perfectionistic urge to keep it all under wraps until everything was just so.

Check back here in a week or two, and you should see more fully developed “About me” and “Let’s work together” pages.

Thanks, and enjoy the site!
