Hire Me


I have been consistently publishing fiction and non-fiction since 1992. I have worked with numerous genre publishers of books and magazines, as well as major houses Bloomsbury and Tor. I have been an award-winning journalist for several newspapers, including The Oklahoman. I spent a few years as a corporate writer for Conoco Inc. prior to the merger with Phillips, writing a newsletter about employee benefits for the human resources department. Following that I was the public relations director for Oklahoma City University, then the South Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce before I became a high school English teacher in 2007 and a college English professor in 2013.

If you have something that needs to be written or edited, I can do it.
