Welcome to my website! I hope you enjoy your time here.
A little about me and why I started writing…
Ever since I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, I have dreamed about stepping through a doorway to another world. While waiting for this miracle to happen, I created fantastical stories instead, and in my various day jobs I have used my writing and editing skills to help people communicate with each other. “Doorway Between Worlds” is my personal metaphor, both for clear communication and the power of story. It’s also the name of my publishing imprint. After years of dreaming of becoming a novelist, I published my debut urban fantasy novel Fortune’s Shadow in April 2020, and I hope to write many more!
I enjoy sharing my knowledge of communication with others, so in addition to posts about my own writing, you’ll find some tips here. I’ve always believed that learning should be fun, so I have brought my love of alternate universes into my blog posts. Here you will find stories about apostrophe ninjas and sentence vampire hunters, not dry summaries of obscure grammar rules. I have also on occasion provided detailed reviews of writing resources and have held in-depth interviews with my fellow writers and bloggers on various communication topics.
I love helping people with their thorny communication questions, so please feel free to drop me a line if you have an idea for a post topic. I’ll do my best to come up with an entertaining and informative answer. I promise.
