Are You An Editor?
Here’s a (not) complete list of projects and clients.
Need a Non-Fiction Writer?
I am a full-time non-fictionista with a passion for writing about the real world.
Although I’ve written about the craft of writing and have operated a freelance writing business for years, my primary niche is history & genealogy. (But that doesn’t mean I didn’t love writing about astronomy, Elvis, flags, journaling, scrapbooking, and just about everything else you can think of).
Travel is a passion, particularly to the out-of-the-way roads of the frontier West. Walking where history happened feels a lot like experiencing it myself. Right now I’m thinking of standing where Coronado stood at Pecos Pueblo 500 years ago.
On my trips I’ve seen strange things. Like ghosts and tepee smoke that wasn’t there. But, that’s another story.
On one trip I traveled to the back-of-beyond (think dirt ruts, stream beds, off the grid) to see a rock where two troopers in Custer’s 7th Cavalry carved their names and the date, on their way to the Little Big Horn. When I drove across the cattle grate to enter the site, I got the shivers – there was something that felt so strange I wondered if I had crossed some invisible barrier to another time. Only one other trip gave me the same shivers – walking down the trail to the Washita. If you know Custer lore, you’ll know this one too.
