I’m a published writer of articles, essays, and blogs, under my own name and several pseudonyms. At this website (Tools & Tactics for Writers), you can check out the categories in the list on the right and choose the kind of writing info (or amusement) you want.
My memoir, My Mother’s Money, was a recent finalist in the SheWrites.com Memoir Discovery contest.
(I’m also the Stylish Ole Woman.)
My home base is in Massachusetts, but I’ve worked with writers as far away as Canada and Slovenia.
Check out the Upcoming Teaching Events tab above to see the writing classes I’ll be teaching in the Winter of 2014. They’re varied and really fun. You’ll learn a lot and laugh a lot.
All of the classes I teach are subsidized, so they’re either free or very inexpensive.
My students range in age from 12 to 92. They are life story and memoir writers, essayists, mystery novelists, short story writers, journal writers, and poets. Most have been taking classes with me for years (maybe because I always bring pastries to the last class).
Starting this winter (2014) I be teaching a course on “Promoting Your Writing and Yourself.” I’ll post the time and dates in Upcoming Teaching Events as soon as they’re settled.
I write copy for businesses, edit manuscripts, coach clients in their business, creative, and life story writing endeavors, and work with young people to strengthen their writing skills.
If that’s not enough, I’m in the final editing stages of my own two memoirs.
One’s My Mother’s Money—a nail biter. The other is about the trials of working for 11 bosses (two were quite insane—I mean, unpleasant) in 11 years in a single institution.
Bachelor’s in English; Master’s in Communications Management. I’ve taken two dozen writing classes and worked with two writing coaches myself. I’ve worked in for profit, nonprofit, and higher ed institutions, as director of large- and small-scale internal and external marketing communications projects.

I enjoy working with business and creative writing clients who want to learn and grow as writers, even if I’m only editing their work.
