Welcome!

You'll find many things here at cellardoorpress.net. And if you know what the site's name refers to, let me know. You're my new best friend!

My various hats include librarian, writer, editor, educator, web designer, and more. Essentially, I'm someone who fell in love with text at an early age and (eventually) built a career on that.

If you need content for your website, I have experience generating content for a variety of purposes:  political, academic, commercial, etc. My clients have included politicians, builders, doctors, nurses, and educational consultants. My writing, both creative and non-fiction, has appeared in several venues. Check out my blog for various writing samples.

If you need content for a report, brochure, newsletter, booklet or similar publication I have experience working with layout specialists and graphic designers to generate eye-catching, memorable publicity.

Do you have a lengthy manuscript in need of polishing? I enjoy digging my teeth into big projects. I have a Master of Arts degree with a focus in Media and Culture Studies. I am also experienced at working with writers for whom English is a second language.

I love working with designers and photographers to craft amazing publicity --print and digital-- and I have worked in such environments many times with great success.

For book reviews, writing news, and original writing by both myself and others, visit my blog where you'll find all of this and more. Some posts are first drafts posted for feedback. Some are finished products submitted for publication elsewhere. Some are submissions from my workshops students. Feel free to comment on anything and everything.

Follow my tweets for regular writing prompts, inspirational quotations, and things that make you go "Hummmmm..."

I have a few publications in the works, some looking for illustrators, others in need of a third-party publisher to get them off the ground. And I'm always looking to connect with new talent so don't be afraid to drop me a line.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Yours,
