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.
