I write and edit children's and YA fiction, business brochures, ads and training manuals, drama, political non-fiction and poetry. I collaborate easily to turn ideas into finished products.
If you have a story, article, book or advertisement to convey to the public, I can help you bring it to life with clear purpose, intended audience and fully formed ideas.
I have written since, at age seven, I was given a sheaf of oversized goldenrod paper by our neighbors. Poems, songs, stories and concerns like justice and integrity filled those pages. Today, my range of professional writing includes most genres, each central to the positions Iíve held and hold.
As a classroom English and Language Arts teacher, I designed a wide scope of curricula for high school and middle school students in Southern and Northern California. With my sister, I wrote and published a children's book, Sunny and Wondrous, Cat Cousins, about solving challenges peacefully; we've loved reading and signing it for kids in numerous Barnes & Noble stores as well as classrooms and libraries.
Training and coaching people in personal and relationship growth has included writing content of curriculum manuals as well as advertising brochures.
Commissioned by a Northern California organization to write plays for children and adults, I turned out several dramas that have been performed for audiences of 400 to 1000. I'm now compiling my poetry into a volume for people wanting to develop the qualities of honesty, fairness, transparency and kindness in their relationships with self and others.
Knowing that teaching requires clarity and structure, I can write a training manual for any industry. Having a a feel for (and the ability to research) what people like and need, I can write advertising copy. I can put political ideas into plain language and critical issues into poetry; I can produce a narration, a skit or a story.
