I have been writing my entire life, professionally and for personal enjoyment. I have experience in a wide variety of writing, creative and marketing roles, including as a social media manager for multiple clients at a time, a blogger for a lovely B&B on a beautiful Pacific Northwest Island, and a staff writer at one of the best newspapers in the country, the Tampa Bay Times (formerly St. Petersburg Times, winner of 12 Pulitzer prizes). I've managed to stay writing while pursuing my other dream as a whale-watching captain; I'm currently loving my third summer on the seas in Juneau, Alaska, surrounded by the world's most beautiful scenery and wildlife. I've had to make my way on my own my entire adult life, and believe these experiences have made me a well-rounded person capable of writing in almost any voice. I'm extremely organized, self-motivated and able to manage my time, and I simply don't stop until a project has reached a satisfying conclusion.
