Frequently Asked Questions*

(*according to myself and written well after midnight, when I should be asleep)


Who are you?

Good question, and I'm trying to figure that out myself. While I work on that, here are some fun facts:

  • I live with my husband, my kid, and a cat named Moose who was very nearly named Owl by my son who was 4 at the time, but I intervened (you're welcome, Moose).

  • I sometimes eat chips for lunch, and I should probably feel worse about that than I actually do. Don't ask me what my favorite is because I don't have favorites of anything, only current obsessions.

  • Speaking of obsessions, I can't stop listening to true crime podcasts.

  • I consider myself to be a pretty good cook, except when it comes to rice. It's supposed to be the easiest thing ever to make, but I can never get it right. 

  • I'm currently a part-time freelance writer. I spent over 10 years working in office jobs until I got burnt out. I now run my own dog walking company as well as a freelance proofreading and copywriting business.

  • My dream is to be a full-time freelance writer and be able to work from anywhere so that I can travel again, because I miss traveling. Presumably I'll have to bring my husband and son along, so I guess I should amend my previous statement and say that my dream is to be a very successful full-time freelance writer.


What do you write about?

I tell stories about my life, either something happening currently or something that happened in the past. Sometimes I write about feelings or ideas. Occasionally I get paid to write something for someone else, in which case I write about whatever they want me to write to about.


Can I hire you?

You sure can! I do copywriting, content writing, copy editing, and proofreading. I do all my business-y stuff over at Perfectly Polished Proofreading, or you can email me here


What's for dinner?

This probably isn't a question you would ask me, but it is a frequently asked question in my life so I'm including it. By "frequently" I mean "daily" and sometimes multiple times a day if we're feeling particularly indecisive. The answer is usually 1) a heavy sigh, followed by 2) a mental scan of what we have in the fridge, and 3) a decision about something involving chicken or pasta. Unless it's Tuesday because then it's obviously #tacotuesday. Or Friday, which is pizza night.
