Feeling uninspired?

You don’t need a muse to tell your story. You just need a writer.

Whether you need a magazine feature or web writing, I’ll base your content on well-researched facts, reliable sources, and more than a little curiosity. And because I write with real people in mind—using simple, engaging language and logical storytelling—you won’t lose your audience halfway down the page.

Bide Awhile Animal Shelter Web copy

Welcoming a homeless animal into your family should be a joyful and rewarding experience. At Bide Awhile Animal Shelter, you’ll find a number of pets waiting for the right person to come along and give them a better life.

If your ideal adoptee comes with whiskers and nine lives, you’re in luck. We usually have a wide variety of cats to choose from. Better yet, Bide Awhile cats are happy cats. By giving them the freedom to roam our shelter’s wide-open spaces during the day and a safe place to sleep at night, we’re helping them become social, adaptable, and ready for their next (and last) home.

If you’d prefer an animal that loves car rides and long walks on the beach, give us a call. Although we have limited space, we often have dogs available for adoption.

HRM Parent Blog post

School’s out, the beaches are full, and the marshmallow roasting sticks are out. Summer’s no time to be serious- just ask your kids. If they’re anything like mine, you’ll be lucky if you get any response at all as they zoom by to play on the Slip n’ Slide with the kids next door. But what about those rainy days, the days when there’s no one home to play with, or when it’s time to settle down for bed? Find the right book and there’s no reason for the fun to stop.

Halifax Magazine Magazine article

You likely know that Halifax is Canada’s largest city east of Quebec. It was founded in 1749 by Governor Edward Cornwallis and has more pubs per capita than any other city in Canada. (Although Montreal and St. John’s occasionally challenge that claim). There’s a cannon on Citadel Hill that fires every day at noon and a cartoon tugboat ambles around the harbour. But even though most of us know quite a bit about our fascinating, historic city, there are a lot of things you don’t know. Here’s 50 of them.

  1. The Halifax-Dartmouth ferry service is the oldest continually operational saltwater ferry service in North America.
  2. Until 1844, the Royal Navy hung pirates at Point Pleasant Park’s Black Rock Beach.

Atlantic Business Magazine Magazine article

We’ve all heard the phrase “If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” And since pretty much everyone has experienced a mother’s wrath at one time or another, most of us would agree with that sentiment. Well, it turns out that business works the same way, with executives and upper management playing the role of the proverbial mama.

ParentsCanada Magazine article

All parents know their child is amazing. Now research is showing that our babies are even smarter than we thought. Within the first couple of months of life, they’re already beginning to develop their passive vocabulary by learning the difference between similar and different word sounds (phonemes). It was this research that inspired Dr. Richard Goldbloom to become involved in the Read to Me! program in Halifax.
