Check Out My New Website—Your Writing Referrals Get Free Copy of Grace Sticks


Got a writing project you need help with? Drop me a note at

In the New Year I’ve started a freelance writing gig to support my family. (In previous posts I’ve shared a bit about the various challenges that go along with parenting a child with special needs, one of which is providing for the various early-intervention therapies—hence this new adventure.) Now, if you’d like to hire me to write for you, your organization or business, you can.


If you’re interested in learning more about the kinds of writing I’ve done and can do for businesses and non-profits, drop by my brand-new writer’s website, which came to fruition during Atlanta’s big snow-in yesterday, and consider sharing it with friends or colleagues who have a need for top-quality writing at affordable rates. Now, for a limited time, when you refer a viable client to me—so no, your pet boa constrictor Elmer doesn’t count— you’ll get a free copy of my book Grace Sticks.

A big thank you goes to photographer Erin Brauer (of Something Pretty) for her great work—yes, I finally decided to shelve the selfie and get a few professional shots—and to Christian and Shari for opening their home to us during our photo shoot.
