Please contact me for readings and editorial services.
I work with any audience.
Special Interests:
I have a particular interest in capturing Alaska as more than simply a place, writing realistic dialog, writing "fearlessly," young adult writers (over 18 and under 25), female writers, gay writers, beginning writers, people who are beginning to experiment with writing, NaNoWriMo.
