I’m fascinated by the ways in which people define, discover, and pursue something more. I've written about all aspects of passion—from travel and food, to putting more heart in your home, to relationships, to spirituality, to making a difference in the world. I'm particularly interested in how people approach the quest to become part of something larger than their own lives. My writing experience includes:
During the past fifteen years, I've built strong relationships with editors at a wide variety of publications. My articles have appeared in O, The Oprah Magazine, Readers Digest, Woman's Day, AARP: The Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, and various other magazines. I also host a blog on Psychology Today, One True Thing, an online salon with essays and interviews with bestselling authors.
I'll Stand by You: One Woman's Mission to Heal the Children of the World (Dutton 2012/Plume 2013). This is the inspiring story of Elissa Montanti, who founded Global Medical Relief for Children in 1994 to help heal one child, a triple amputee from Bosnia. Since then, she's brought more than 150 children from war-torn countries to the U.S. for prosthetics and other medical care and built a global family of helpers.
Will you be my Mother? The quest to answer yes (Shebooks, 2014). This short e-book is a collection of three personal stories about the ever-expanding nature of motherhood as we grow older and wiser.
I am also working on my first novel, which I found in Rwanda eight years ago.
Marketing and Publicity Consultant
Before the magazine writing took off, I made my living as a brand strategist and copywriter at marketing firms in New York, Chicago and Seattle. I’ve also been a publicitist at a publishing houses in New York as well as the publicity manager for a regional magazine publisher and a record label in Seattle. I still occasionally freelance in this arena.
I have co-developed and co-taught an online class for authors in book promotion through Freelance Success. I have also led sessions in the areas of writing profiles, building a business plan and other topics for The American Society of Journalists and Authors. Recently I've become interested in helping teens to find their voices, and have mentored teen authors at Richard Hugo House in Seattle.
