Stories can be very powerful,

Stories can open new doors,

Stories help to spread your message to the world,

Stories give our experiences a voice,

and stories help us to relate to one another.

Our everyday lives are steeped in stories…

And stories are written down by you and me and are a treasure to be discovered.

Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers not thunder. — Rumi

Yes, my website is all about stories because stories are essential to our intricate web of life.

Welcome

I’m excited for you to be here!

Through reading My Blog you will uncover stories on many topics. It’s a space for relatable articles, fictional pieces, recipes, poems and more.

If you’re looking for an experienced writer, look no further as I am open to commissions!

I hope you know that when you Hire Me for your writing projects, you’re not simply getting a writer. You’re getting an educator, a hard worker and a dedicated freelancer. I promise, once you have me on board, I will work hard to get your stories out there for the world to see.
