What? Not what you expected when you saw the words “freelance writer?” (As if we come from any one particular “type”) I honestly can’t say what anyone would expect when they see I write and end up managed by a 10-pound feline demon. (She may be a flerken; we’re still conducting experiments)
But maybe you – like me – have a weird streak. A touch of strangeness. A slight twist of INTERESTING that makes you unique and FUN.
Excellent! We’re destined to be friends!
Let me guess:
- You contemplate whether aliens are an equal mix of adorable and deadly.
- Those horrific AI tools NEVER cross your mind; you’re committed to human sources of art and creativity.
- You spent childhood car trips staring out the window and fantasizing about imaginary worlds just past the window.
- The words “impossible,” “inconceivable,” and “outlandish” don’t exist in your vocabulary.
- You’re a HUGE fan of Tonks.
I knew it! We’re completely sympatico!
And you’ve come to the right place for award-winning storytelling. Or insightful essays. Or even well-rounded reporting. (My writing brain is super-flexible)
(Oh, and, yeah, Tonks. I’ll get to her)
Not Your Average Freelance Writer
During my time as a freelance copywriter, I produced over FIVE HUNDRED blog posts, content pieces, and downloadables!
(I know – prolific, right?)
From pet-related content (okay, there’s A LOT of pet-writing) to literature research and even deep science dives, I threw my sentence and grammar know-how into crafting brilliant writing for delighted clients. Talk about WORK!
Luckily, I had the cutest feline Personal Assistant in the entire Universe at my side. (She made me write that)
But MY writing – the ideas and stories swirling around in my brain – had to take a backseat the entire time. Can’t exactly tell a client, “Do you mind extending my deadline a few weeks? I just got a killer short story idea!” So I had to make a decision:
Keep churning out top-quality work for everyone else, or focus my time on the writing I loved.
(Okay, so it wasn’t a TOUGH decision)
I’m now – after an undisclosed number of years – writing FULL-TIME!
And, yes, Tonks continues to supervise every tap of the keys.
If you’re curious about my process, want to ask about any of my published work, or simply have a question about writing in general, drop me a line. I’m happy to answer whatever I can.
Meanwhile, enjoy reading! (I promise, there’s more to come!)
