I enjoy interviewing my subjects and finding out who they are and getting their essence across to the reader. I love putting the words on paper and arranging them so they fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. Then it’s time to cut and slash, massage and morph my words, taking out everything that does not contribute to story as a whole.
When I’m done, I package up my work neatly and send it off to my editor who combines it with brilliant headlines, creative graphics and beautiful photographs. The result… I was voted one of the Okanagan’s Top Writers, twice!
Location is a State of Mind
I live on Vancouver Island and spend quite a bit of time in the Okanagan as well. I write for great local, provincial, national and even international clients. My main focus lately has been EQ writing for travel guides, travel magazines, and travel blogs. I’ve travelled to amazing places like Haida Gwaii and sleepy towns like Trail, BC, where I met the most interesting people. I also love to write a good food story, or a story about arts and culture. I love doing music and food reviews and anything that helps me bring great information to readers. I’ve had to stop linking to my stories as I’ve written almost 1,000 articles and columns over the past years.
I’m currently the editor for BC Wine Trails and love it! As a wine lover, this position is a perfect fit for me, and it is four issues a year, so there’s plenty of time to explore other projects.
Just google me, I’m sure something will pop up! Once you’ve done that, drop me a line. I’d love to write for you.
