For Publishers

Hello Editor and/or Publisher!
Welcome to the secret rabbit hole. Feel free to look around and learn more about me, and what I've been up to!

Do you ever need a freelance writer with expertise in creative non-fiction for children?


Are you understaffed and up-to-your eyeballs with projects, without enough writers in your stable?


Did another freelance writer leave you holding the bag on a project?

This is where I come in…

I can take over the writing of your most difficult projects and put a smile
on your face.


I’ll meet deadlines with the writing style that you ask for, the first time!


I’ll be your ace-in-the-hole: a self-starter, who is motivated, and able to work seamlessly with you and your team, so you can get on with your other projects.

I am an award-winning author of more than 70 books for children and adults. I have been working in the publishing industry for more than 20 years as a Creative Manager, Senior Editor, and Writer. I’ve also been a judge for the Writer’s Digest Self-published Book Awards for the last four years. Holy wowzers…Batman…it’s been fun! Let's just say that my three favorite things are being organized, researching subjects, and writing my next book...not necessarily in that order.


However, my specialties are rocks and minerals, space, animals, nature, crafts, art, myths and folklore, monsters, guided journals, travel writing, and combinations of facts and fiction, like my best-selling Zombie Apocalypse Survival Guide.


My career in publishing started as the editor for a decorative painting book club. Since those early days, I have worked with hundreds of publishers and packagers around the world. Want to get in on this party?
