Since 2009, I've been working with writers to bring their stories, secrets, and sensual truths into the world.
But it started much earlier than that.
I've been writing for as long as I can remember. It's a common statement among writers, and for me it is true. I also started reading young. By the time I started school, I was reading Berenstain Bear books to the class while the teacher graded our worksheets. This early pairing -- writing and reading -- was my life. When I wasn't in class, I was in the library finding new books to read, or in the woods devouring books and filling page after page of notebooks and diaries.
Just days before my 16th birthday, I received an acceptance letter for my first publication An essay on self-identity, it was published in Dust & Fire, an anthology of women's writing and art. As I opened the envelope, I realized a simple truth:
words are my life.
Whether it is reading a new book, or sitting down with an author to edit a manuscript, words are the way I want to spend my time. I am engaged, excited, and aligned when I am working with a client or teaching a group of students how to bring their writing to the next level. I'm invested in preparing you and your work for acceptance and publication from the very first draft. Receiving a book -- whether purchased myself or as a gift -- is cause for celebration and reverence. We writers know how much work goes into everything that makes it to publication, much like knitters are the best recipients of knitting, because they can see the work that goes into each stitch.
