Freelancing fiction and non-fiction since 1988 with writers as far flung as Sydney, Sofia, Beijing, London, Bangkok, and Johannesburg, as well as doctoral candidates around the US. I work collaboratively with clients to bring forth their passion – with clarity and coherence, while preserving and amplifying their distinctive voice. I strive for lively, efficient language, and challenge writers to develop their craft. I work with many genres, but am drawn to projects that reflect the beauty of this planet and the mystery of our hearts.

Did you recently publish a book? Are you disappointed with your social media engagement or need help setting up your online profiles? Whether you need one-on-one training, a social media audit to gauge your online platform, or a partner to help you handle your social media for you, contact me. I also write blog posts for clients, assist with website copy, help you manage your newsletter, and help clients grow their following while improving reader engagement. My experience with social media is diverse and includes Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Tumblr, and Instagram. I offer a 20-minute, free conversation to learn more about you, your books, and your goals.

Social media is a dynamic field that is constantly evolving, and I enjoy the challenge of keeping up with every innovation and tweak that occurs so I can help authors like you grow your online presence.

I began as a reporter before delving into the field of public relations. When social media emerged, it was only natural that I would use this new platform.

As a social media strategist and manager, my focus is on helping authors like you surmount the barriers that keep you from flourishing online and selling more books. When you retain me, you have a team member ready to set up your social media profiles, handle your accounts for you, provide training, and even write your blog posts for you.

That’s right; you’ll never have to think about your social media accounts again (unless you want to). I guess you could call me a social media genie. I do it all for you.

What if you only need a session or two of training? I can provide that as well.

Whether you write romance, literary fiction, memoir, YA, or for the new adult market, you need to be on social media if you expect to connect with your readers.

I’ve written guest posts for Joanna Penn and Jane Friedman’s blog and several specialty blogs, including Romance University and Nina Amir’s blog, Write Nonfiction Now. And I’m a contributing writer to Joel Friedlander’s blog, TheBookDesigner.com and the designated Social Media Expert and blogger for BookWorks, and a blogger for Bowker’s SPA (Self-Published Author).

Author Marketing Experts, named me one of the top 16 people to follow on Twitter in 2016 and named my website twice to their top 30 list and top 100 list.

I’ve taught social media for authors through Stanford University Extension and UC Berkeley Extension as well as at the San Francisco Writer’s Conference, Redwood Writers, the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Conference, the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference, and the Bay Area Independent Publisher’s Association. In addition, I provided a summit session for the Canadian Writers Association and was interviewed by podcaster Joanna Penn.
