I am a writer and editor, living in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 2016 we ditched suburban living and downsized into a 91-year-old foursquare craftsman house near our vibrant downtown. We rescued the house from the shallow depths of despair, and its sloping floors and creepy creaks make me feel connected to history, reminding me that imperfection is always more interesting than polished beauty. We have joined a beautiful community of artists, freelancers, and entrepreneurs who are trying to make the world a better place through creative pursuits and thoughtful activism.
I have a degree in journalism, worked as a reporter for my hometown newspaper, edited a magazine, ghostwrote two books, and freelanced as an editor. I’m not new to writing, but I also know how difficult it is to communicate our stories well. I hope by writing authentically, I can encourage you to share your own story. I also offer writing and editing services. Head on over to the Services page to learn more. You can also read more of my writing here.
I’m learning a new normal in this season of pandemic, quarantine and general uncertainty. My hope is that we can use this time to begin new stories of courage, creativity, compassion and hope. What’s your story? I would love to hear from you in comments, by email, or connect with me on Instagram or Facebook
