I was a newspaper reporter for several years before making the switch to public relations. I thrive on words and never quite get enough of them. That’s why I blog here, at Phase Three of Life, and also why I started my own web writing and editing business, Magna Writing & Editing.

Phase Three of Life was voted into the Top 25 Baby Blogs on and has been featured on BlogHer, BlogHer Moms and Aiming Low. I even occasionally manage to impress with my photography skills, such as by winning Growing Up Geeky’s Favorite Photo Contest.

If you want my words for your blog or publication, just ask!
