Looking for a writer?
I'd love to work with you.
I am a seasoned communications and marketing professional with experience writing brochures, newsletters, video scripts, speeches, training manuals, employee manuals, web content, social media posts, postcards, flyers, email blasts, and posters. I'm also a print and broadcast journalist with experience writing hard news, press releases, professional correspondence, feature articles, and copy for feature-length advertisements. Professional editor. Professional novelist. I am experienced, diligent, responsible, and love to meet deadlines.
As a writer, I pride myself on creating text that speaks the language of my readers. From conceptual, powerful, and thought-provoking words to pretty, emotional, and clever words, I craft my message to meet goals in the most effective and persuasive manner. As a journalist, I'm able to research material without difficulty and break down industry-specific terms for the average consumer to understand. As an editor, I work with writers to polish and refine the work while being true to the author’s voice.
Megan edited my novel manuscript, mainly for content and style, helping me catch many inconsistencies and redundancies I had missed in my own revisions. She paid special attention to patterns in my writing weaknesses, flagging them multiple times so I could see how wide-spread the issues were, and she guided me in the standard use of tricky punctuation. In short, she helped me start to find the diamond beneath the coal dust. I especially appreciated her professional communication, her punctuality in meeting our agreed-upon deadline, and her reasonable fee.
~Kaylene Powell, author of The Voice of Melody
I hired Megan to help me connect with various media outlets, including local newspapers, television stations, and radio stations. I was on a time crunch and was concerned I hadn't given her enough time to craft the material, but I was wrong. Megan created press releases and letters with event and interview pitches. She also sent me additional media outlets I hadn't considered. I was very pleased with her level of expertise, her efficiency, and her responsiveness. I highly recommend her services.
~Jennifer Slattery, author of When Dawn Breaks and Beyond I Do
It's amazing how Megan was able to distill pertinent information down to a manageable size for our website.
~Reid Hanson, President & Founder, Cairnstack Software
I have worked with Megan for several years, and I have found her to be a thoughtful, convincing, and sensible wordsmith. She has an ear for the written word and has used her talents to help me build hundreds of different marketing campaigns and many of my more successful posts on my blog and social media sites. She has also polished my company’s public image by creating several different bios for my employees and myself personally.
She is always very professional in appearance and demeanor, but personable in her interoffice interactions. Her work is impressively punctual, meeting all of her deadlines and many times returning text to me within hours of my requesting them. She manages to organize notes from several departments into coherent communications, and her proofreading skills are par excellence.
I’m very excited to give this recommendation to Megan because I believe in her talents so much. I know she will be a valued member of any staff lucky enough to catch her.

Expand your sphere of influence, the philosophy goes, and the clients will find you.
Sounds simple enough, right? You’re good at what you do and you have a lot of wisdom to share. So, how do you translate that into influence?

Author Media Letter
As someone covering the drama of day-to-day life in the Omaha [Lincoln, etc.] area, I’m sure you’ve seen it all. Life can get messy. Chaos can reign. Discouragement can be a life sucker.
Not many understand difficult situations more than myself. Once homeless and a high school dropout, I have prevailed over many challenges to turn my life around. Today I offer a message of hope, both through speaking engagements and my missional novels that inspire others to get involved in the community.
Well versed in the issues faced by the disadvantaged in the Omaha [Lincoln] area community, I would like to make myself available as an expert for you when the need arises.
I have now come full circle and am a board member of an Omaha Metro ministry that connects people with humanitarian organizations to serve the working poor, homeless, the addicted, impoverished, at-risk and broken. To overcome, I focused on my goals rather than circumstances, completing seminary classes to equip myself to be an asset to the community. I strive toward raising awareness for homelessness, dispelling the myths, and turning apathy into compassion and involvement.
I have attained success in life and have become a published author and winner of several national and local writing contests, a ghostwriter, and have created Vacation Bible School curriculum. I currently write for Crosswalk.com, Internet Cafe Devotions, and an international ministry that broadcasts to 32 countries. I am a member of American Christian Fiction Writers.
My latest novel, When Dawn Breaks, released this past January. It is a contemporary romance filled with humor and intrigue. The story centers around a hurricane and its aftermath, ten years after Katrina. I lived in Louisiana during Katrina and helped with the humanitarian efforts. As in my previous release, Beyond I Do, characters overcome obstacles and embrace hope—much like I have.
With your approval, I would be delighted to send you a copy of When Dawn Breaks.
To arrange an interview or just chat, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m eager to be of assistance and love to discuss all things literary.
Attached is a press release, and here are some links to reviews of my books.
Thank you very much for your time and attention.
