Speech Bubble

Welcome to my oh-so-humble brag page. That’s right – this is where I share my publications! We’re talking the articles, essays, and short stories that underwent the rigorous process of editing, reviewing, and revising. (To say nothing of the pitching/submission – and a few rejections – process!)

Yes, I hold these separate from my professional portfolio. Mostly because I set out to complete the work. I wasn’t working for a client (with two exceptions). They represent:

  • Independent research (even those that were a “labor of love”)
  • The scientific method (where appropriate)
  • Blending storytelling and information to connect with readers
  • Working on a deadline
"Crazy!" is exactly what you must be thinking to stumble upon such a brilliant freelance writer

Not to mention a lot of personal marketing. I got the word out for all the publications through my social media to help boost readership and sales. I know, it didn’t hurt my exposure, either)

"Say what?" Of course this freelance writer is THAT good

Oh, and if you’re worried about affiliate links, you’re in the clear. I don’t make a single penny when you click these links. (Not even if you decide to buy a copy of a book) Whatever compensation I received from these publications already made its way to the bank.

And odds are the Minions spent everything eons ago. (That’s what being a responsible pet parent is all about, right? Keeping your furkids in the lap of luxury they’ve come to expect?)

What are publications without a few extra bragging rights? Writers don’t always take the time to shout about their accomplishments, and I want to change that (for myself, anyway).
