Where I go deep, get weird, and share all of my best (and usually highly priced) writing tips.
*At least, that’s what I’m told. Find out for yourself!
The holidays tend to divide us every year. You love them or you hate them. They’re easy for you or hard for you. A time of comfort or stress. One thing is almost guaranteed, though: Whatever your usual sentiments are about the holidays, they’re probably magnified in 2020.
I discovered a magical combination of writing tricks that have changed everything. Well … changed my writing life. And sometimes that feels like everything. While all of these tips are clearly aimed at writers, and at breaking that thing we call writer’s block, the same principles can be applied to almost any craft.
I remember one summer in New Mexico when so many forest fires ignited across the Southwest it was impossible to escape the scent, and the detritus, of burning land. I’d take my dog on our evening walk around the block, watch the sun blaze red as it sank to the earth against an ashy sky, and then return inside to wipe soot from my face.

Professional editing services.
I work with authors and entrepreneurs on non-fiction, creative non-fiction, memoir, and marketing projects, as well as the occasional piece of fiction.
I handle large-scale, developmental edits; can turn a bare outline into a print-ready piece; or can simply provide some extra polish before you send your work out into the world.
If you need an article or blog post for your site or publication, I’d be happy to oblige.
Over 15 years in the field, I’ve covered a whole lot of subjects: news and politics, arts and culture, gender and sexuality, health and environment, media and business, and probably just about any other topic you can throw at me.
I’ve also written in a fair number of styles and genres, including hard news, opinion, criticism, analysis, narrative non-fiction, and plenty of first-person essays.
Launching a business, updating your website, opening an online store, or looking to boost your SEO? This is my most popular service for a reason: Every great project, product, or profile needs a great site—with the right words to get people there, and then the right words to keep them.
I’ll edit, structure, and rewrite your website content to live its best life. And if you need someone who can build the framework for your site, I can take care of that, too. I build sites in WordPress, Shopify, and Squarespace.
