It all started with an old Smith Corona typewriter. Push a button. Bam. A black letter slams onto white paper. What kid can resist that? I couldn’t.
My first writing gig was as the editor and sole reporter for Spot News, the award-winning daily newspaper on Jupiter. Then I wrote my own myths, from why evergreens stay green to how cardinals turned red. Then I rewrote the battle scenes from The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe so that Lucy had a sword instead of a horn.
In search of a paycheck after college, I lucked into a career as a producer and writer in series television. I’ve worked on everything from PBS documentaries to HGTV to the Food Network series. I love the challenge of telling a story in pictures and soundbites, crafting a piece so it speaks for itself, engages the audience, and leaves an impression.
But I’ve never lost my love of making stuff up.
I’m always writing, always juggling multiple projects, always revising and editing and learning. Which is exactly what I want to be doing. Links to all my stories and more can be found on my main page.
