For as long as I can remember, I've loved the written word. But, this may be because I come from a family of women writers. My grandmother, Sylvia, was a speechwriter for first lady Eleanor Roosevelt and ghost writer of radio soaps for Elaine Sterne Carrington. And her mother, Bessie, was an aspiring romance novelist. So, it's no surprise that I've spent the past 25 years as a full-time writer and editor.
Forging my own writing path, I became a journalist specializing in health and personal finance. My goal was to help readers with two of the most pressing issues in their lives. I've now penned more than 10,000 articles for major consumer publications, including First for Women, Glamour, New York Daily News and Self. And for more than a decade, I've regularly contributed health features and written a weekly personal finance column for Woman's World magazine.
I'm also an award-winning author of health and personal finance books, including the women's health book 28 DAYS: WHAT YOUR CYCLE REVEALS ABOUT YOUR MOODS, HEALTH & POTENTIAL. This book introduced the world to "cycle-syncing", which shows women how to live in sync with the ups and downs of fluctuating hormones in their menstrual cycle. While this concept was groundbreaking at the time this book was originally published in 2005, it is now followed by millions of women worldwide.
With 25 years of nonfiction writing and editing experience under my belt, and a desire to help foster the work of others who share a love of writing, I offer nonfiction book coaching and developmental editing for health and personal finance books.
