I have always been in love with words. I love reading them, writing them, and mulling over them until I find just the right one.
Over the years, I’ve done a little bit of everything. I’ve written two of my own books (Kingdom Above the Cloud and its sequel – title still top secret!), edited everything from full-length novels to short blog posts, and even served as a ghostwriter for an entertainer/speaker who sent me voice memos of his ideas and relied on me to write blogs that sounded just like him. (Probably the weirdest and most fun job I’ve ever taken on.)
I decided to make the official jump into creating a business, rather than accepting editing jobs willy nilly. If you have a manuscript or some blog drafts, I’d love to take a look and see how we can work together!

There are a few other things you need to know about me. I work in Student Life at my alma mater, Anderson University (Indiana). GBGR! Our students are some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met.
However, my three very favorite humans call me “Auntie M” (ok, one of them doesn’t talk yet, so technically he doesn’t call me anything. But he smiles and babbles at me a lot!). My nieces and nephew are the absolute light of my life, and I live for spoiling them.
I’m a cancer survivor (I always feel so dramatic and kind of awesome when I say that). If you go back far enough in my blog posts, you’ll see that this website started as a blog about my surgeries, chemo, and that rough road. I’m so thankful that season is in my rearview mirror, and I’m also thankful for all of the lessons and love that came from it. A parent of one of my students once said to me, “I love hiring cancer survivors. You people aren’t scared of anything.” He’s 80% right. There are still some things that scare the living bajeezus out of me, but cancer definitely changed how I view life and the world around me.
I love to travel, particularly in our National Parks and historic cities around the world. I love the Indiana Hoosiers (HOO HOO HOO). I love Harry Potter and wish I went to Hogwarts. I am lucky enough to have TWO summer camps that mean the absolute world to me (Pyoca in Indiana and Great Escape Midwest in Wisconsin!) Most importantly, I LOVE Jesus, and you’ll see that in my writing. I strive to follow in His footsteps in everything I do, even though I’m super not perfect at it. “What does the Lord require of you? To seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8) Wouldn’t the world be better if we all did those three things?
Ok, now you know me! I’d love to know you. Tell me about your project and how I can help you get it to the finish line! CLICK HERE!
