IN A NUTSHELL, I WRITE ABOUT PEOPLE, PETS AND PLACES; PROMOTIONS AND PRODUCTS; POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.

I’m  a  freelancer  who  writes, edits and researches: articles, blogs, essays, grants, marketing and sales materials, newsletters and proposals. I ghostwrite, too.

I work with clients to get words just right. I spent 18 years in the newsroom of a New York Times-owned paper. My pieces on people, pets and places have appeared in several regional magazines as well as in national publications that include: “America’s Horse,” “Dog Fancy,” “Equus,”  “Fine Homes,” “Prime Real Estate” and  “Weight Watchers.”

Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to talking with you next time a writing project threatens to topple the pile on your desk.
