How can I help?

Writing Services & School Visits

Writing Services

My projects range from articles for magazines, both children and adults, blog entries for websites, product descriptions, environmental research papers and nonfiction children’s books. My diverse skills and interests have led me to write about parenting, lifestyles, health and wellness, nature, environmental, technology, and more. I’m a quick study in any subject, and pride myself on my ability to get up to speed quickly and deliver an amazing product—sometimes under tight deadlines.

School Visits

The school programs I offer can be tailored for different age groups.  From a simple author visit to an in depth program on magazine writing in the classroom, it’s up to you to decide.  I am extremely flexible in working with a specific classroom curriculum so no worries!

In addition, I offer a reading and writing program designed around my book titled, Wake Up Young Soldier, which profiles infamous children of the Civil War.
