Writing

Over the years, I’ve written bios, brochures, books, essays, columns, blog posts, and articles about crafts, activism, creative identity, and how to find your own authentic voice. In the non-profit world, I’ve written reports, executive summaries, and reviews.*

In case you don’t want to read me talking about my own writing, you should go hear it from others. The word people use most about my writing is “inspiring.” In fact, they’ve used it over 3,000 times

If you’d like your next publication to be inspiring, too, let’s talk.
