To pay the bills, I edit continuing education courses for insurance and financial professionals, mortgage brokers, tax preparers, and funeral directors. I do some occasional freelance ghost blog-writing (specializing in natural health and nutrition topics). My true love is writing fiction, so I've got a 600-page novel I'm in the process of editing and will someday, with any luck, get published. I live with my husband (Jake), our daughter (Mary), five cats (Grimalkin, Whiskey, Oliver, Oscar, and Slim), and one dog (Charlie). I also sometimes blog at http://thestorygirls.livejournal.com/.
