hello,

If you're looking for a story, you're in the right place. I'm Jamie, and I'm obsessed with the "right place." I've spent my whole life looking for it, and much of my time writing about it. I've been around the world looking for the right place--and I've come to find that place is the page. I'm a professional writer who works in many areas: environment, technology, personal finance and travel.

I have a master's degree in English from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where I studied the life and work of Louisa May Alcott. My bachelor's degree is in English & French from Salve Regina University, where I studied memoir & personal essay with the late Nobel Laureate, Dr. Peter Liotta.

Now, I edit and proofread manuscripts, ghostwrite, write website copy, translate from French to English, and, of course, collaborate with you for new project ideas. I am also the Communications and Marketing Director for the Colorado New Play Festival, which brings five award-winning playwrights to Steamboat Springs each year to develop new plays.

I was born in New England and currently live in northwest Colorado. I spent a formative part of my childhood in the Marshall Islands, in the South Pacific. I have also lived--often and happily--in different regions of France: in Paris and Dijon and the Loire Valley.  I'm fascinated by place-attachment and reverse culture shock, and how places change in our memories over time. I am currently working on my first book.

If I'm not writing, I love to play guitar by a campfire, work in the garden, and to sit reading next to John Major,

my reference librarian extraordinaire.
