I’m so blessed to be living every writer’s dream: making a living as a freelance writer and editor. I enjoy the challenges new projects bring, and the variety of writing and editing I do for magazines, books, blogs, websites, and more.
The purpose of this blog is to share information with my clients and other freelance writer and editors. In addition, the blog showcases the magazine articles and books on which I have worked, and is a platform for me to write about topics I’m passionate about.
I have more than 10 years of professional writing, editing, copyediting, proofreading, and marketing experience for national and regional consumer magazines, book publishers, and higher education institutions. I have written or edited content for 20 different magazines and several books. I’m also the author of the book, Unofficial Guide to FamilySearch.org.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and mass communication from Iowa State University. In addition, I have won awards for commitment to service and excellence from my previous employers.
MY LIFE OUTSIDE OF WORK
Being a freelancer allows me to achieve a great work-life balance. When I’m not working, you might catch me traveling to new places, trying (and tweaking) new recipes, or researching my family history.
