About my writing

DSC08321

Most of my published work has been journalistic in nature. I’ve worked for Minot Daily News and for special sections through Bismarck Tribune. Although my family and I moved from North Dakota to Utah in 2011, I still occasionally accepted article assignments for special sections until the spring of 2013.

One of the most challenging journalistic endeavors I enjoyed was being a regular contributor for Bismarck Tribune’s Bakken Breakout.

I also feel honored to have worked on the transcription of letters for Arlene Elle Gray’s Letters from Iran (available on Amazon.com here). I’ve done a few other copy editing, line editing and light marketing projects. I love the writing/editing craft in almost every form.

My fiction books include The Night Ones and The Heart of All Magic They’re currently available for sale on Amazon. I have several other works in progress, both fiction and nonfiction, and I hope to get at least one of them out this year.

Raise your hand if you love the writing life. Who’s with me?
