I'm the author of novels, poetry, essays and short fiction. I'm also a magazine editor with more than a decade of experience in print and online publishing.
Are you an emerging writer? I can help you master your craft and set your firmly on the road to publication. Visit my coaching services pages to learn how I can help you tell the stories that are important to you.
Looking for a freelance editor & writer to assist you with a project? Visit my services page or email me for more information.
I'm also available for speaking engagements, workshops, lectures and teaching presentations about craft and the writing life.
My areas of expertise and interest include: women's and feminist literature (contemporary and classic) utopias & dystopias in pop culture and literature, the Hero's Journey, genre fiction (historical, dark fantasy & sci-fi, speculative fiction and Gothic horror), literary and commercial fiction, fairy tales, mythology, folklore and experimental prose.
As a writer and artist, I seek to redefine prevalent cultural images of women and motherhood; question the nature of gender roles; establish a feminine vision of the future not rooted in technological alienation and destruction; and, of course, to write killer stories that satisfy our natural human lust for action, sex, love, violence and intrigue.
