Hello, Writer!

I am a Word Alchemist, the President and founder of The Heart of Writing, and the best-selling author of The Art of Inspiration: An Editor's Guide to Writing Powerful, Effective Inspirational and Personal Development Books. My mission is to empower writers to move through their perceived limitations, harness the power of their authentic voice and message, and create world-changing written works.

My editing portfolio includes numerous successful non-fiction titles (including several national and international best-sellers) and nationally-published articles. In addition to working with individual authors and businesses for over a decade, I am the Chief Editor for Inspired Living Publishing, and have edited all of ILP's best-selling print anthologies, including Inspiration for a Woman's Soul: Cultivating Joy (2015) and Inspiration for a Woman's Soul: Choosing Happiness (2015). I am also an expert contributor to Aspire Magazine, the Aspire blog, and the ILP blog.

Are you ready to bring your vision to life? 

If you need assistance creating or editing your non-fiction book, developing engaging marketing materials, or generating top-notch copy for your website or blog, please contact me to schedule your FREE consultation!
