I’m a freelance Christian writer who specializes in producing materials for the faith-based, nonprofit market. I also provide strategic consultation to help nonprofits get their message out and get results.
I have always been a reader, but began writing in earnest in 1996 when planning for a second career after serving in the military. (I spent 20 years as a flutist with “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band in Washington, D.C., before turning to writing full-time.) A letter in my mailbox invited me to take an online article-writing course.
Soon I was earning periodical bylines and book contracts. When I turned to copywriting, my years of volunteer work and time on four nonprofit boards drew me to the nonprofit niche.
As I began partnering with small to mid-sized organizations as a development writer and a freelance Christian writer, I discovered that many of them struggle in the communications arena – most often because staff members wear too many hats. I learned that as I provided good information and reliable service for these committed professionals, they have been able to develop effective communications, build their donor base, and grow.
Along the way, 100+ articles with my byline have appeared in more than 40 periodicals, both print and online. I have also written 6 books (more than 100,000 in print.)
Today, most of my time is spent with nonprofits, faith-based groups, and small businesses, helping them make and work a solid communications plan.
I’ve also created this site to provide leaders with good information they can use on their own or with a partner (like me) to get results.
My husband Brett and I have two terrific grown children. We live in Lake Wylie, SC (outside of Charlotte, NC) with Dizzy, our husky/retriever mix and Eli, our hound/chocolate lab mix.
And ... I'm still a reader.
I write articles, appeals, blog posts, books, brochures, business letters,
case statements, cover letters, devotionals, direct mail packages, email
campaigns, e-zines, flyers, fundraising promotions, grant applications,
leader’s guides, lessons, newsletters, press releases, résumés, sales letters,
study materials, web content – pretty much anything you need to get your
message out and get results. (See a longer list of copywriting services.)
