I'm a Pennsylvania-based freelance magazine and web writer/editor with more than 15 years of experience. My work has been published in Women's Health, USA Today, Better Homes & Gardens, Spirit, Forbes Travel Guide/Startle.com, Punchfork.com, Susquehanna Style, Central Penn Parent, Central PA magazine, Rain Taxi, and more.
My copyediting and fact-checking clients include Parragon Books, Feast magazine and Fig/Moxie House. I can clean up copy to make you—and your product—look more professional and be more clear. I am "fluent" in AP and Chicago styles, and I can easily adapt to your own particular style.
I understand both sides of the publishing "coin, " as I've worked both as a full-time magazine editor and as a writer. I write mostly about food, health and wellness, parenting, and home and garden, but I'm versatile and flexible. (From long features and short FOB blurbs to Q&As and personality profiles, I've written it!) I file stories that are clean, well-researched, stylishly written and on time. I'd love to work with you.
