Giving You a Voice with the Written Word.
Creating Your Message
You know your vision, your passion, and your business. Let me help put that into words on your blogs, website, newsletters, and more.

Empowering Your Message
Let me train you to manage your own online content marketing (blogs, website, newsletters, etc.) with custom workshops.
How Does This Work?
Have you ever worked with a writer before? Even if you’ve hired a content writer in the past, each person is unique and that makes each partnership unique.
Here are some of the most common questions I hear about working with me.
What do you write?
Professionally speaking, I ghostwrite for clients, which means I make it sounds like they wrote it or said it. My name appears nowhere in the work. I specialize in website copywriting, blog writing, advertorial writing, and newsletters writing (and basic design).
When writing under my own name, I write news articles and blogs on my personal site, Sunflowers & Thorns. My dream is to finally write a couple of books.
What kind of writing do you not do?
I have largely moved away from most social media writing and I never write resumes, wedding vows, or books for other people.
If you have a need in one of these areas, I have colleagues or places I can suggest for most needs!
How much do you charge?
My rates vary on the service. Some services are per project and others that include too many variables to create a per-project rate are billed by the hour. For a complete list of rates visit my Rates & Payments Policy Page.
What payment forms do you accept?
I invoice in Square, which allows you to pay via credit or debit card. I also have Venmo, PayPal, and Bill.com. I also accept checks.
Do you work with agencies?
Yes! Agencies of various sizes often outsource various aspects of their operations, including writing.
I often collaborate with agencies and other professionals to write for their clients. In some cases, the agency is who hires me and they are the billed client. In other situations, the agency will refer their client to me for the writing component of the project and that client is billed directly.
In either situation, I require that I be allowed to have access to the client I’m writing about. I’ve found that going through the agency for information, research, and tone of the project creates too many barriers and it is harder to provide quality, effective work.
Do you donate to nonprofits?
I donate time, talent, and resources to two organizations: GiveCamp NWA where I serve as both a volunteer and board member; and WordCamp Fayetteville’s Meetup Group.
When my budget and schedule allows, I donate a free website review as a silent auction item.
Otherwise, my usual rates apply.
What's the process?
Each service requires a different process. Visit each service page to learn more.
