I’ve been writing and mentoring other writers in one form or another since high school. I did not take up writing professionally until I decided it was time for a career change. After working many years in the electronics industry, it was time for a new challenge.
“Electronics industry” in this case is not a euphemism for “worked at Best Buy”. I worked for a contract manufacturer who built circuit boards for other companies. The boards ended up in some pretty cool devices: flight data recorders, medical equipment, items used by the military and telecommunications equipment. The electronics industry’s loss is your gain. I bring a lot of technical knowledge with me into the world of freelance writing.
I’ve done extensive copy writing and article writing under some very tight deadlines. I don’t want to brag, but I have a 0% rejection rate. (Okay, maybe I’ll brag a little.)
I’m a regular contributor to Plains Magazine, a new digital magazine serving the upper Great Plains region. I’m one of the Prairie Voices and I have written articles for the publication.
I’ve ghostwritten articles, blog posts, product reviews, product descriptions and web copy in a diverse variety areas including:
- hobbies and crafts
- social issues
- outdoor activities
And if that weren’t enough variety, one of my past projects was writing copy for a popular RPG gaming podcast.
I guess you could call me a Jill-of-All-Trades. Unlike Jack, I’ve mastered quite a few of them.
Writing about these very diverse topics under tight time limits requires the ability to learn quickly and to do thorough research to ensure the work is accurate. Not only do I learn quickly, I love doing research. I love to learn and I am always open to learning new things.

When I’m not copy writing or writing for magazines, I also enjoy creative writing and I do some in my spare time. I’ve even had one of my poems published in eFiction Magazine. I also help out at the magazine as a proofreader and submissions editor. One might not think creative writing and copy writing go hand in hand, but they actually do. Understanding the creative writing process helps me look at your needs through fresh eyes and present you with unique content.
Over the course of my working life, I was always known as the “go-to” person. I earned this reputation because of my knowledge, my willingness to step up to the plate to see that a job was done correctly and deadlines were met, and my attention to detail.
