Writing credits and examples


Whether writing about a dentist's practice or the tale of someone's life, any story can be written well, encouraging readers to turn the page, or scroll down--satisfying their desire for more. 

I'm a full time freelance writer, editor, and the co-author. of A Brief History of Safety Harbor, Florida. I teach writing workshops at the Safety Harbor Art and Music Center, and have a background in working with both adults and children. I am currently the editor in chief of Odet, a Florida-based literary journal. My children's picture book,edited by Jennifer Tombuelt,  When Lourdes was Big, is scheduled for release this summer.
