Companies I’ve Worked With:

Nashville-Based Memoir Ghostwriter, Editor & Content Strategist

Whether it’s ghostwriting the memoir of a transplant survivor or capturing the story of a global nonprofit that’s changing the world one drop of water at a time…

My job isn’t done until your audience is excited about what YOU have to say.

As a writer, editor, memoir ghostwriter, and content strategist, I can help you cut through the noise to clearly capture your message in the most creative and compelling way possible.



When it comes to writing, I have experience in everything from fiction to finance to faith. Whether you merely have a concept or are looking for an experienced writer to help you finish out a piece, I have a professional background in both the creation of original content as well as taking your idea and fine-tuning it into your very own masterpiece.

Have a story to tell, but find yourself questioning your sanity at the mere thought of trying to find the time or emotional energy to write it? You’re not alone! This struggle is why so many authors choose to work with a memoir ghostwriter.

Ghostwriting memoirs is without a doubt one of my favorite parts of my job because the extensive interview process often allows me to build relationships with some of the most incredible people I’ve ever met. Whether I’m working with a mom who overcame postpartum depression or a double-amputee whose enthusiasm for life is downright contagious, my clients are by far the best part of my job.


Even the best writers need editors. Whether it’s a first draft or the 100th, an experienced pro can undoubtedly make all the difference in getting your manuscript ready for print so you can get it into your devoted readers’ hands.

You know your business. But what if knowing your business inside and out is what makes it so hard to write about?

Don’t believe me? Try summing up what makes you, you, in one sentence. See what I mean? This is how a copywriter becomes your business’ best friend.

Not only can a great copywriter capture your “voice,” but their fresh eyes can convey your message in a way that converts your audience, generates traffic, boosts your SEO ranking, and helps you stand out from the crowd.

Over twenty years ago, while a freshman in college, I wrote my first book. Mercifully, only four hard copies were printed, and now I think it’s safe to say that they will probably never resurface except maybe as potential blackmail material.

Somehow, somewhere along the way, someone (who had way too much confidence in my abilities) hired me to be the “voice” of an international nonprofit. Thankfully, their belief in me paid off with millions in donations, and I’ve been writing professionally ever since.

Today, I have the honor of working with the best clients this Texas girl could ask for—whether it’s ghostwriting the memoir they’ve dreamed of publishing for years or crafting the website content they need to launch their business. Every word is part of their story, and it’s my great privilege to tell it.

“And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”

-Ephesians 3:17-19
