In addition to writing children’s books, I’ve also discovered the joy of freelance writing. I write non-fiction in a variety of genres.
Merritt Island Now is a print publication and is delivered to approximately 50,000 residents. I’ve been writing for them since August 2015.
FloriaNowNews is an online business magazine. I wrote my first article for them December 2016.
Here’s my first article for Florida Now News
I had the joy of meeting some wonderful women by “accident” (and I don’t believe in accidents) at the Space Coast Book Lovers 2018 Event in June and they asked me to write for their magazine called bUneke (said Be Unique) which has the mission to seek out ordinary people doing amazing things for their community.
My article called Read, Recycle, Reward Books on page 30 is about a local organization of retired teachers who put together books with matching toys and gives them away to children who would otherwise not own a book.
My article called Reading is Her Passion is on page 18 about a warm, gregarious woman whose goal is to read to one million children.
My second article is about Wear Gloves, found on page 22, is about an organization in the heart of Florida helping people who are homeless.
And my own article called 5 Tips to Make Returning to School Less Stressful
My first article is called Grandmother Turned Tragedy into a Helpful Organization found on page 26 where a lovely woman who found herself raising her Grandchildren realized more support was needed so she developed this group, Grandparents Raising Grandchildren, to help others who might find themselves in the same shoes as her.
My latest opportunity (January 2017) is Swell Life, an online and print magazine that focuses on Beach Life.
A big thank you to Carolyn Howard-Johnson who connected me with Karen Cioffi-Ventrice to be a regular blogger for Writers on the Move (WOTM) starting March 2017.
Here’s my first blog post on WOTM about how to get your creative juices flowing again!
