Freelance Sustainable Living Writer

Are you looking for a freelance sustainable living writer? A homesteader who knows the difference between a pressure canner and a boiling water bath, and when to use which? Who has milked the goat, slopped the pigs, and collected eggs with a baby on her hip?  Do you need a writer who knows the difference between a weed and a bean sprout and can conserve water as though it would never rain again? Well, look no further.

Not only has my family of eight homesteaded our modest acreage since 2001, I’ve lived to tell about it. In fact, my articles have covered how to:

Lay a tile hearth • Roast coffee • Grow truffles
Compile a cookbook • Make bread • Clean chicken feet
Grow brambles • Fight squash bugs • And more!

Whether you need a magazine article, blog post, e-book, or case study, I can make living a sustainable lifestyle appealing to your readers, and your brand sound like the answer to their prayers.

Maybe farming isn’t your thing. You need a home improvement writer who knows what it’s like to gut a whole house and put it back again. Someone who can turn contractor’s hammer talk into homeowner’s love language. My first published article was a DIY how to lay tile and I’ve been covering the home scene ever since.

As a veteran freelance writer, my work has appeared in over 70 local, regional, and national publications. I’ve worked as a columnist, magazine editor, blog content manager, blogger, and content marketer. Keep scrolling to check out my latest work.
