Writer Biography

Add fresh content to your website, blog, or other online marketing system easily with pre-written or on spec content. I love writing and providing clients with articles they can use. I work from a home office where I tend my beautiful gardens in between projects. I'm a certified life coach, member of a small business organization, and a former home stager. My experience in these areas gives me more than ample topics to write on.

I specialize in articles on gardening, pets, small business marketing, real estate, home improvement, relationships, anxiety, depression, happiness, hope, and self-improvement.

I try to focus on a “why” and "what" — Why would your reader want to read this? — What will your reader take away? — What action might your reader take next? — How will this article entice him to take action?

My passions are writing, creating art, exercising, enjoying the outdoors, managing my home, gardening and landscaping.

Consignment stores, free tables, online ads, and thrift shops are a few options for how to disburse your stock so your home can feel more peaceful and organized.
