love words and grammar.

And I believe in nurturing relationships, whether I’m connected to you via work, friendship, or family.


My first book, Single Mom Seeking, was published by Seal Press and optioned by 20th Century Fox for a TV comedy show.

My most recent essays have appeared in The Washington Post and The New York Times.

I’m currently co-teaching a Middle Grade/Young Adult Craft Workshop at Left Margin LIT in Berkeley, CA with young adult novelist Alexandra Ballard.

I’m represented by Eric Myers.

I regularly review books for Barnes & Noble and Common Sense Media.

I’ve written 100s of articles on relationships and parenting, and I have worked on social media campaigns about everything from herbal tea to solar power.

My clients are intelligent, creative people who want to make the world a better place to live.

I love to offer helpful, constructive revisions, and I’ve been told that I smile a lot.

I believe that collaboration and kindness are magic.

I practice yoga, and I appreciate good coffee.
