Welcome to the space I use to indulge my creativity and practice my craft. Most of what you'll read here is bits of my fiction writing and regular writing prompts. These are writer's-block-busters that may not directly tie into a current writing project, but you never know when a list of all the styles of pens in one's desk drawer may  become relevant!

I started my editing business shortly after graduating with my English degree from Penn State University. I completed an MA in religion from Temple University in 2014, with a research focus on the depiction of women across religious traditions. This program reminded me how badly I missed the humanities and gave me the kick in the pants I needed to amp up my engagement with the subjects that interest me. 

My husband, son, and I live in a quiet neighborhood with a very noisy hound dog. We are constantly dreaming of the day we can pick up and move to an island. Until then, you'll find us alternately wishing for more snow days and longer springtimes in the northeast.
