A freelance writer and editor, I collect my family’s stories at Playing with Words, and my personal essays and short stories have appeared in my collection, Nothing Goes Away, and various anthologies. Searching for the perfect mascara, jeans, and comfortable heels drives me crazy and running, 80s music, reading and my kids keep me sane.

I spend part of every day trying to convince my husband to buy into my color-coded calendar system to make sure our 9 and 7 year olds are where they’re supposed to be at the right time. A former director of Listen To Your Mother Metro Detroit, I believe in the power of bring stories to life and always celebrate the magic of storytelling. In addition to freelance work, I champion independent authors as a managing editor at Bannering Books, a small publishing imprint. When I should be sleeping, I works on my latest short story collection.

Playing with Words is PR friendly. I accept published books and advanced reading copies for review. I am available for freelance writing assignments on a variety of topics, including parenting, fitness, and ghost writing. Additional writing samples available upon request.
