A few weeks ago I was in San Francisco at my very first professional writing workshop. I had the pleasure of meeting and learning valuable advice from professional writers and agents such as Chuck Sambuchino, Mary C. Moore, Laurie McLean, and Paul Levine. The most important piece of advice I took away from that conference was the importance of establishing a platform for my writing career. This simple website is the first major step towards building that platform. I will be posting news and updates of my writing/editing projects and current magazine reviews at NewPages.com. I will be adding more to this website in the months to come and I look forward to connecting with new writer friends and readers.
