Writing & Editing Services

What do I do best?

Serve my customer.


In what ways?


Magazine feature writing

If you need an experienced writer for a special assignment, I’m your gal. With work featured in over 70 local, regional, and national publications, I often have editors come to me with assignments. I have written everything from gardening to history to personal profiles.


Column writing

A columnist needs to know the meaning of a deadline—and have an artesian well of ideas. If you need someone you can trust to fill space on a regular basis, I’ve been there, done that. I wrote a regular, money-saving column for my local newspaper and, for several years, a homeschooling column each month for a national magazine.


Blog posts

I have written for numerous highly-trafficked blogs—either as a one-time guest poster or a regular contributor. In 2015, I started the blog for Fermentools, a manufacturer of fermenting lids for canning jars. Within one year, I took their website from non-existent in Google searches to front page for major keywords.



Whether you need website landing pages, newsletters, case studies, or other branding materials, I’m ready to go. I enjoy taking your stories and presenting them to the world.


Editing and Proofreading

I have worked as both a blog editor and the editor of a regional lifestyle magazine. A proven typo magnet, I can take your copy and make it shine.



There’s nothing I enjoy more than teaching others about what I do. If you need an enthusiastic speaker for your conference, I am ready to present on various writing, homesteading, and parenting topics.
