Welcome to my website. I'm glad you're here. I'm an award-winning journalist, editor and author, with more than 20 years of experience creating compelling content. I tell rich stories that take readers on a journey. And my strength is in making complex ideas easy to understand and relevant to anyone.

I write about business ...
One of my specialties is writing about and for businesses. I'm a regular contributor to Fast Company and Entrepreneur. I also write for custom and trade publications such as Gift Shop Magazine, Specialty Retail ReportIndependent Dealer and Footwear News. You'll find links to some of my articles here. I'm also an accomplished copywriter and have written for Staples, Ford Motor Company, General Motors, General Electric, Century 21, Sherwin-Williams and Little Friskies. I offer several services for businesses, including newsletters, ghost blogging and white papers.

and real estate,
Another specialty is real estate and home design. I cover organization for Parade magazine's website. For 13 years, I was a real estate reporter for The Tennessean, covering new construction and interior design. I'm also the former associate editor of TwentyOne magazine, which was published for Century 21. Actually, real estate is in my blood; I come from a long line of realtors, and my parents were house flippers long before it became reality TV. Check out some of my clips.

and I help others become authors.
I've written one book and edited four others. Most notably, I'm the story editor of A Random Book About the Power of ANYone by Talia Leman (Simon & Schuster, October 2012). A complete list of the books on which I've worked can be found here.

Now I want to help you.
