About

You wish getting started—or learning more—about Scrivener were easier, right? Let me help.

I'm a working writer, using Scrivener nearly every day for my own manuscripts, blog posts, and more.

Since 2010, I've helped thousands of people all over the world through online courses and one-on-one training, in-person workshops, and Scrivener For Dummies. I'd love to help you learn Scrivener too.

I started sharing my love for the software in early 2010 through a series of weekly blog posts intended for my writer friends. I never imagined it would turn into a book deal and a training business, but I couldn't be more grateful. I've been a systems analyst, a software/business instructor, and a manufacturing engineer, but I've found my true passions in teaching and writing.

My books and classes on Scrivener and other tech tools for writers feed my inner geek and my desire to teach. Writing romantic suspense keeps me fully engaged with research, solving plot puzzles, and figuring out my characters.

I have wandering feet, and travel is in my soul. Luckily I married an Air Force engineer (retired) who feels the same way. When I’m not writing, teaching, or traveling, I’m usually jogging at the beach, reading, or exploring my current home of southern California (Redondo Beach/Los Angeles).
