In addition to web and print design, I’ve also written copy for television, radio, websites, marketing materials, blogs and fiction. Below are a few writing samples.

The Spiral Path

At the top of my writing accomplishments is the publication of my science fiction novel The Spiral Path, which was released in March 2011.

Published by Carina Press, the ebook division of Harlequin Enterprises, my book is available at all of the major online retailers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the Apple iBookstore and even in audio from Audible.com.

Reviews can be found on Goodreads and Book Chick City.

Danger Gal Blog

Since 2004 I’ve maintained the Danger Gal blog, where every Friday I profile strong female characters, usually in science fiction and fantasy, but also in the mainstream media and fiction when applicable.

I’ve also written several guest blogs of note, specifically the following:

Thermo Fisher Scientific

Since May 2011 I’ve been employed as a contractor with Thermo Fisher Scientific working on their Fisher Scientific website as a web content editor and emarketing specialist. As part of this position I’ve had the opportunity to design and develop the minisite for the education newsletter Headline Discoveries. I’ve also had the privilege of writing for the newsletter about biotechnology and physics news:

SFSignal

I also write for SFSignal.com, as one of their “Irregulars” writing book, movie and television show reviews in addition to contributing to regular features such as the “Mind Meld.”  The full list of articles I’ve written for SFSignal can be found here, but the following are some of my personal favorites:

SFSignal.com was recently nominated for the Huge Awards, both in the “Best Fanzine” and “Best Fancast” categories. In addition to writing articles for the fanzine, I’m also a regular on the weekly podcast.

Content Factory

In Fall 2010 and Winter 2011, I wrote the following articles as a freelancer for the Pittsburgh-based marketing agency The Content Factory:

National Business Aviation Association

From 1993-95, I managed publication of the National Business Aviation’s Digest, their 16-page monthly newsletter. In addition, I also designed as well as wrote and edited copy for numerous other print publication for the association. In 1995 I joined NBAA’s web team, but continued to provide editorial support as needed.
