The Lord has blessed me with opportunities to work in several aspects of the Christian writing and publishing industry.
- I am a professional freelance editor and writing mentor/career coach.
- I am a published author and ghostwriter/collaborator.
- I am the owner of Christian Editor Network, parent organization to four divisions for freelance editors and proofreaders:
- The Christian PEN: Proofreaders and Editors Network, a professional support organization for aspiring and established editorial freelancers
- Christian Editor Connection, which matches authors and publishers with established, professional freelance editors/proofreaders (and was the sponsor of the Excellence in Editing award until 2022, when Christian Editor Network took over sponsorship and renamed it the Editors’ Choice Award)
- The PEN Institute, which provides education and training for editors
- PENCON, the only annual conference for Christian freelance editors
- I have been a speaker/teacher at writers’ conferences across the country.
- I directed the Orange County Christian Writers Conference for three years, then founded the SoCal Christian Writers’ Conference and directed it for four years. I also directed the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference for four years.
- I am an aspiring screenwriter (after learning the craft from speakers I invited to my conferences and then being personally mentored by a screenwriter who has had numerous scripts produced).
- I am available for hire as a screenplay proofreader, having proofread scripts for a top producer at Sony’s Pinnacle Peak Pictures (rebrand of Pure Flix) and receiving high praise for that work.
- I am the founder and director of Christian Writers Retreats, which holds retreats for writers and anyone in or connected with the writing industry.
I am also the abundantly blessed wife of a fabulous man, mother of two terrific sons, and Nana to two amazing grandkids.
