A recovering journalist, I now use my mad grammar skills to help authors develop and polish their work, so that they can sell more books and get better reviews. For details on my rates and more, visit my Editing Services page.
In my creative work, I write gritty tales about outlaws, renegades, and misfits—a biker chick who risks everything to rescue her niece from drug dealers, a girl with lesbian moms pushing back against a high school bully, an emerging news reporter hunting a legendary monster, and more.

I’ll ride in the desert heat, the pouring rain, and even the cold as long as there’s not ice on the road (usually not a problem in Phoenix). If you ever want to ride with me, send me an email or connect with me on social media and let’s hook up.
My dream is to start of a politically progressive motorcycle riding group called “The Bleeding Hearts”. Interested?
