She enjoys creating original content, as well as social-media and online publicity for local, regional and national authors + websites, seminar leaders, health care professionals, businesses and non-profits. She knows how to attract the attention of your visitors, readers and customers. Her newspaper reporting career started in Boca Raton, Florida writing about local movers and shakers, events, movie reviews, and books/authors. She earned her business chops copyediting at numerous newspapers. She doubled the size of one newspaper in Las Vegas, as Newspaper Editor by creating editorial and advertising solutions. Her work has been published in 40+ publications including Entrepreneur magazine, Parents, Los Angeles Times, SF Chronicle and more.

"I love taking on the next creative challenge. For example, I have acquired skills in blog production and promotion, page layout, web design, photography, and I'm not done yet."   

With hundreds of published articles in more than 40 publications (see writing credits page), five romantic travel guides, and two e-books under my belt and three years of blogging experience, I'm never at a loss for words. Plus, my background writing about business, travel, pets and natural health and mind/body/spirit topics makes me the freelance writer to call when you've got a project.

She loves to interview people and find the hidden golden nuggets in their stories. She has been known to write fun and heart-warming features and content (blog or otherwise). She delivers copy on time and on budget.
