Ghostwriter, Editor, and Copywriter for Hire!

Oh, friends, I am SO excited to announce that a freshly re-designed is now live* and brimming with details about the work I’ve been doing lately!

While the blog is still a huge part of my workload, most of you know that I write for a variety of other sites and publications, too. Over the past year, I’ve begun taking on more ghostwriting, editorial, and copy writing work, and have found these behind-the-scenes projects to be incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. I hold a degree in creative writing and have more than 12 years of experience in marketing, communications, and editorial work, so collaborating with clients is second nature to me. Although I specialize in non-fiction books and book proposals, I’ve taken on everything from artist statements to online courses.


On Vanity

I’ve begun updating some of my greatest hits posts so they’re more current. This is one of them!

what is vanity

When it comes to public opinions on beauty-related activities and efforts, the mixed messages can get positively dizzying. If you spend loads of money, time, and effort creating a physical presentation that aligns with socially sanctioned beauty ideals, you may be told you’re vain. If you reject the idea that all women should conform to a single beauty standard and shun the clothing silhouettes and grooming practices associated with that standard, you may be told you’re frumpy. If you consider a manicure or facial or other practice associated with enhancing or improving your looks, people may scoff. If you are perfectly happy au naturale, people may sneer.
