My interests are often times as varied as my writing experience. First and foremost I enjoy reading. My favorite genres include sic/fi, fantasy, horror as well as historical nonfictions and philosophical musings.
My top 5 favorite fiction books:
The Reapers are the Angels by Alden Bell
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (I can count but 5 is just way too few!)
In my free time, I enjoy writing for fun. I enjoy writing science-fiction, fantasy and literary fiction as well as non-fiction blogs.
Beyond reading and writing, I enjoy staying active with yoga, walking, and running. I listen to podcasts, mostly "Stuff You Should Know" and I watch some TV, mostly "Stranger Things", "Downton Abbey" and "The Walking Dead". I like to keep my interests diverse and well rounded. I am often called a nerd for my not so secret Star Trek obsession.

In the summer after my fifth grade year, every Sunday morning, my father would open up the paper and circle all of the garage sales we would hit once he was finished with his coffee. We were never looking for anything in particular. We simply enjoyed looking at the discarded artifacts of other people’s lives. One day, I came across an antique typewriter that must have weighed half my body weight. They were only asking $5, so I laid out my crumpled money and took it home. I spent the rest of that summer clacking away on that old type writer. I wrote a story about a young girl who found a way to time travel through the use of her typewriter (wishful thinking I guess).
Many years later, I received my bachelor’s degree in English Literature and K-12 education followed by my Master’s Degree in Library and Information Sciences. I began my career as a teacher of English Language Arts and Writing before following my passion for writing as a Ghostwriter. I am well versed in many styles of writing and my master’s degree has given me a solid foundation in research.
I am an acknowledge ghostwriter with published works in fiction and non-fiction genres including romance, literary fiction, science-fiction, memoirs, self-help, business, and medicine. My Published non-fiction works have required in-depth content research on diverse subjects such as ecology, cardiology, technology, gaming, health and wellness and beauty to name a few. My published fiction works have gone on to receive both critical and commercial success.
My expertise includes content research, creative writing, business writing, and the ability to quickly assimilate content and project objectives and turn ideas into professional published works written with the client’s voice. I have an astute attention to detail that I will lend to your project in order to bring in to publication. I am strong project leader with fine-tuned analytical skills, seamless project management, excellent time management and innovative design and conceptualization capabilities.
