The focus of our interview was the freelance life and balancing work and family as a writer. We chatted about my journey as a writer and how I’ve reinvented myself over the past 17 years as a freelance journalist, marketing writer, health writer, fiction author in several genres, developmental book editor, online course creator and founder of Shortcuts for Writers, all while staying home with my kids.
We talked about the ups and downs of the writing life, how to pull back when the work gets too overwhelming or life gets in the way, how to dial it up when more income is needed, and why I created my Book Editing Blueprint course.
