I'M A WRITER

I write memoir, personal essays, articles, profiles, and reviews for magazines, newspapers, and online venues. I was a finalist for the 2018 Frank McCourt Memoir Prize. I've been nominated twice for the Pushcart Prize and am a recipient of a Connecticut Press Club award. I've been published in The New York Times, Brain Teen, Brain Child, Memoir Magazine, and featured in The Hartford Courant. 

I'M AN EDITOR

I edit memoirs, novels, personal essays, and articles. I provide writers developmental feedback and guidance on standalone excerpts and full manuscripts. Having been promoted from Contributing Editor to Managing Editor of two award-winning literary magazines, I now serve as Editor-in-Chief of Centered: The magazine of personal stories, a literary magazine I founded. I've honed my editorial skills in publishing and taught creative writing at Wesleyan University, in addition to lecturing at Bay Path University and Central Connecticut State University.

I'M A WRITING COACH
I work with writers to help them craft their essays, memoirs, novels, and business writing. Clients have been published by Penguin Random House, Macmillan Publishers, and New World Library. Clients' blogs have been syndicated as a result of my publishing input. I've worked one-on-one with writers as a writing coach at literary hubs, including Westport Writers' Workshop and The Storyteller's Cottage.
