Reading and writing have always been my favorite things to do. Most of my professional career involved interviewing, reporting, writing, and editing in newsrooms, first in radio and then in print. As a freelance writer, I enjoy talking to people and sharing their stories, or researching topics and crafting articles.

Fiction writing tugged at my heart when I had kids. After hours spent nestled with my children, our noses in a book, stories of my own swirled inside my head. I have written children’s fiction for magazines and ezines. I also have fingers crossed, prayers sent, and rain dances performed for my picture book and middle grade submissions.

Published or not, I love the writing journey. I’ve met some awesome people along the way and look forward to the long writing road ahead.
