As a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), I am part of a national network of independent nonfiction writers who have met exacting standards of professional achievement. My work has appeared in regional and national consumer and trade magazines, including Time Warner’s Millionaire Blueprints, Texas Monthly, Cowboys & Indians, Real Estate Executive, Fort Worth, Texas Magazine, and Clinton Anderson’s No Worries Journal.
As a magazine writer, I have covered a lot of ground, literally and metaphorically. (View Clips) In the process, I’ve learned how to get to the heart of each assignment, regardless of subject or scope.
With a honed ability to interview and research in a way that gets the job done while keeping my subjects at ease, I shepherd each story to its most meaningful connection with its target audience.
