“After nourishment, shelter, and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” ― Philip Pullman

I am an editor by profession and a writer by calling. This site is meant to serve as an outlet for the latter, as I get plenty of satisfaction from the former on a daily basis.


Within these digital pages, you will find my musings on writing: my ideas, my process, the processes of others who intrigue me, the goals and hopes and dreams of the inner creative wordsmith constantly lurking in the back of my mind and in the tips of my fingers.

You will find my views on publishing’s ever-changing ways, journalism’s place in a 24/7 news world, and the struggles of industry to keep up with the times.

You will read the random thoughts that strike me at 10:45 PM, when I’m supposed to be settling in for the night but can’t because that’s not really how inspiration works.

You will hear about a good book I’ve read, or an inspirational quote I’ve overheard, or an excellent piece of advice I was given.

You may stumble across a short bit of a work-in-progress giving me particular trouble that I feel only the unique eye of the 21st-century universe can help me unravel.

My muse loves company, so feel free to join me.
