About Me

I am a Michigan-based writer of poetry and non-fiction. I have over 20 years experience in magazine and newspaper writing, public relations, technical communications, and copy-editing.

I have not been blogging for some time, but here you can find links to some of my publications and samples of my freelance work.

Poetry and Creative Nonfiction

Articles, Editing, and More

As a freelance writer, I have written about local news and civic issues, nature and outdoor recreation, science and technology, education, and general human interest topics.

I served three years as volunteer editor and designer of a quarterly association journal. I have copy-edited an instructional guide book for property tax assessors, newsletters and annual reports for a large non-profit nature center, several papers for research journals, and various other documents.

As a technical writer with a focus on usability for a governmental software company, I authored on-line help systems and training manuals for multiple products, produced configuration and implementation documentation for system administrators, and created and maintained a style guide for documentation standards.
