I fell into catalog and web writing a dozen years ago when a magazine client requested I take on a special project. In short order, that client and the others that followed have made me an in-demand online copywriter.

No doubt thatıs because I bring magazine-feature-writing know-how to catalog and web projects, creating copy that is lively, original and effective. Further, I understand the importance of knowing a client's audience, or target market.

Whether I'm assigned a full-fledged website, a mini sitelet, an online publication or product copy—from exquisite dinnerware to luxurious lingerie to high-tech electronics—I deliver exceptional copy, complete with relevant details, storied nuance and attention-grabbing style.

From a day in the life of a retail buyer in New York City to a year in the life of a second-year medical student. From romantic weekend getaways to successful family camping adventures. From how to hire a contractor to before-and-after room remodels. From an essay on surviving your first year of marriage to a feature on the secrets of long-married couples. From profiles of business owners to Broadway stars, spa gurus to university presidents.

Over the past 20 years, writing for both national and regional magazines, I've covered an endless variety of fascinating subjects and people with award-winning results. For your next assignment, let me do the same for you.

I have been fortunate to be on both sides of a book editor's desk. As writer, I was honored to tell the compelling, true-life story of a Holocaust survivor in My Name Was No. 133909… And I Sang. As editor, I developed and edited a national anthology, The Cancer Poetry Project, which won critical acclaim and a sought-after Minnesota Book Award in 2002. Additionally, I have edited two educators' writing books for Scholastic and written a chapter included in a book of essays. Other book projects are in the works.
