I am an experienced writer and editor, based in L.A., who specializes in:

  • copyediting general nonfiction
  • copywriting for broadcast, print and the Web
  • writing for kids 
  • writing about horses
I graduated Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and then moved to New York to earn a Publishing Diploma from NYU's School of Continuing Education. While in New York, I worked for Doubleday & Co., HarperCollins, Random House, and Condé Nast Traveler , to name a few, and was a member of the Bank Street Writers Lab. After relocating to L.A., I served as Editorial Director of the Juvenile Division at Price Stern Sloan (remember Wee Sing and Mad Libs?) until Walt Disney Records recruited me to be Editorial Manager of its book and audio division. My favorite project at Disney was writing an original story called The Brightest Star that was narrated by James Earl Jones.

I am the author of Healing Power of Horses: Lessons from the Lakota Indians, and the executive editor of GaWaNi Pony Boy's Out of the Saddle. My short stories have been published by Adams Media. I also have been listed in Who's Who in America; have been both a guest lecturer and a student in the UCLA Extension Writers Program and I'm a member of
Editorial Freelancers Association, Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Women Writing the West, Western Writers of America, and American Horse Publications.

I will be signing Healing Power of Horses: Lessons from the Lakota Indians at the Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival  on April 24-25, and at the National Day of the American Cowboy at The Autry Museum of Western Heritage on July 24.
