I write web and marketing copy, film and TV scripts, articles, blog posts, and a podcast.
I also coach other writers. Lots of people want to write, but feel blocked, or jaded, or don’t know where to start and end up drinking too much coffee and rearranging their kitchen cabinets. I love working with these people.
But writing isn’t everybody’s jam. I get that. If you’re looking for someone to capture your brand message, make your web copy sparkle and get your products or services to stand out from your (obviously lesser) competitors, I’ll love working with you, too.
And if you just like being told stories, especially brutally honest, funny/vulnerable/inspiring stories about love and loss, growing up and not growing up, finding ourselves, forgiving ourselves, forgiving other people and asking out celebrities, you probably want to tune into A Single Thing. That’s my podcast about – you guessed it! – being single. So many people say that they’ve grown more, changed for the better, and learned the most about themselves while flying solo. I like these people,* so I get them to talk to me. And I talk, too. A Single Thing is available on iTunes and Spreaker, or you can stream it right here.
* If you aren’t single but are still a nice person, I’ll probably like you, too.
“Maybe these things take a while to develop. Maybe people change. Maybe vulnerability grows.” So I waited, even though I knew – or at least, the loud lady living in the corner of my brain knew – that people don’t change on a dime like that, unless they are characters in Hollywood movies.

I have, to my surprise and horror, met someone I like.
It’s not serious. I can’t do serious yet. I am still too traumatized by serious. Even leaving a bottle of contact lens solution at his house feels transgressive. He gave me a toothbrush because I forgot mine, and I had to stop myself from throwing it out afterwards to delete the evidence.
He loves to travel.
He doesn’t want kids. At all. Ever.
“I’m going out of my mind,” I whisper to my friend Susan.
“Me, too,” she whispers back. “But don’t forget: it’s Day 2.”read more
