There are always two sides to every story…. Read one or both – up to you!
Who Am I?
Who am I? That’s always a weird question. It’s hard to boil your very essence down to a few words. On the surface, I’m a mom and busy business owner of Silverpen Productions, LLC—a content & marketing services organization. I’m also a ballroom dance instructor and lover of the arts. Spending time outside with my family is one of my favorite activities, but if I’m not writing or fulfilling mom duties, you can also often find me hitting up a Zumba class or chilling out on a yoga mat. I played on a curling team in high school (the one with the brooms, not my hair—that’s already curly enough!), and I loved being a part of the theater world.
Others would say I’m perky, positive, and passionate. My family is my everything. People intrigue me. I love to laugh. I adore children’s literature, and the Hallmark channel is my guilty pleasure.
I believe dreams can come true, and that passion, hard work, and a dose of love and kindness can achieve just about anything!
The Technical Stuff…
In terms of my writing background, I have been a part of the writing world all of my life. Crafting stories, articles, children’s books, and plays since I was little, I decided to turn my passion into a full-time career. I graduated Skidmore College with a major in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. While there, I was lucky enough to study with several amazing, prize and Pulitzer prize-winning authors and teachers.
I interned as a screenwriter & producer’s assistant at 20th Century Fox in Beverly Hills, California before working in an editorial capacity with textbooks at several top publishing companies, including Pearson Prentice Hall, McGraw-Hill, Elsevier, and Delmar Cengage.
I often write articles for websites and magazines, and I am the Editor/Content Coordinator for the Clifton Park Neighbors and Niskayuna Neighbors magazines through Best Version Media.
I opened my company, Silverpen Productions, LLC, to help other businesses, non-profits, and publications have quality, customized content and marketing materials that can help them stay competitive while still fitting into their budget restraints.
I love words, so I have enjoyed every type of writing I have tried so far. However, my true passion is creative writing. There is something so magical about being able to create a world and characters that others can relate to and learn from. I have written across genres, but tend to concentrate in the world of children & young adults. I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators, and I am so excited to introduce you to my world!
