About

 

I’m a writer and freelance editor living in New Mexico. My stories and poems contain magic, since that’s what really happens in life, but not the kind of magic with fancy wands or perfect edges, necessarily. I’m drawn to authenticity and healing, and to pursuing the mojo of life that motors us through the challenges.

I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was ten, when I wrote my first attempt at a novel (dragon fantasy — ultimately brief, but heartfelt). By now, most of my life has focused on words, and I’ve written daily for decades. You may have seen me scribbling in a cafe nearby, where I offered a friendly apology and said I couldn’t talk because I was writing, but it was good to see you. And it was.

My stories, poems, audio collaborations, and articles have been published in a tidy, fancy heap of literary magazines, contests, and other media sources, including these: PANK, NANO Fiction, We’Moon, Hunger Mountain, Going Down Swinging, matchbook, Gargoyle, Doctor T.J. Eckleberg Review, flashquake, Luna Station Quarterly, Eco-Source, Crosswinds Weekly, The Alibi, and The Santa Fe Reporter.

Interested in learning more? You can find links to fantastic things on the Publications page of this website. The Gifts section offers selected published poems and stories. Visit the Audio area to listen to poetry and music collaborations, and the Blog section has some personal whispers.  Have you explored them yet?

As mentioned, I’m also a freelance editor. (What?! Yes.) I offer freelance developmental editing, copyediting, and tutoring services, and my rates are downright reasonable. My clients are working writers, self-published authors, business professionals, students, and anyone else needing a hand with their language.

Really, most people can benefit from a sharp and helpful set of eyes when their project is nearing completion. I offer that. I can also provide tutoring and guidance for writers who are newer to the field.

That’s a little about me. Connect with me if you’re curious to learn more. Tell me about what you’re working on. Relay your odd dreams.

Write on, friends.
