 What can I do for you?

PROOFREADING
Alpha/beta reads and final edits help produce a polished product, whether a book or a resume.

COPYEDITING
Consistency and flow are key in any document, whether a novel or a PowerPoint presentation.

BOOK REVIEWS
Everyone needs a good book to read. Spread the word about your book, worldwide.

TRAVEL TIPS
Whet your travel appetite: get packing advice, learn the art of the Spanish paseo, or reimagine Holy Week in pictures. Alternately, see all of my travel posts!

FAITH-BASED TRAVEL
I love writing about missions work. Homesickness is a topic near and dear to my heart, and the lessons learned can be applied in many places!


I’ve long been passionate about proofreading. My second-grade teacher wrote on my report card that I was already correcting her spelling and grammar!

Ever since, I’ve kept busy writing and editing like crazy. With a strong business analysis and licensing background, experience with foreign cultures and languages, and technology savvy, I bring a unique range of talents and skills to any work environment.

I enjoy a good challenge – whether it be debating use of the serial comma, spelling “gray” versus “grey”, or recommending Indian restaurants throughout Great Britain.

Travel is my passion; I’m always thinking about my next trip and wondering what I’ll see and who I’ll encounter.

    1. Thanks very much, Rob!

      I haven’t created any LOTR-inspired recipes – yet!! That’s a great idea; can’t believe I never thought of it. I already have a few recipes that with some modifications would be excellent. 🙂 Will post some soon! Thanks for the ideas!

  14. I am completely over the moon in love with Middle Earth myself, esp on the Aragon & Arwen angle of romance within the heart of the series; however, I haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading Middle Earth in novel form! 🙁 I had wanted to attempt it prior to the motion pictures, but I decided that my itch to see the adaptations was greater than my ability to read the tome of what Tolkien left behind! Therefore, I eagerly headed off to the theater and was quite surprised to find how comfortable & how familiar Middle Earth felt to me! Now, I realise it was filmed in *New Zealand*, but there was simply something about that particular world that felt ‘known to me’ rather than unknown?! I didn’t watch the Hobbit editions in film, as I truly want to read all of Tolkien’s brilliance in the ‘order of Middle Earth’ which involves going in/out of the Histories of Middle Earth and through the series as it was published!

    How lovely to find someone else as giddy about this as I am! 🙂

    Have you read the Histories!? And, other supporting stories!?

    1. I’m so glad to find another LOTR fan! 🙂 You are going to absolutely love the books. Can’t wait to talk with you more as you read them!

      I’ve tried to read Silmarillion three times and haven’t made it all the way through. 🙁 But, I have read Children of Hurin and bits and pieces of the Books of Lost Tales. I’ll have to move those up in my list of books to read! 😉

  15. Hello!

    I first discovered your blog through Amber Stokes’ (my editor) blog a while back, and I’ve stopped by a couple of times. It’s lovely what you do here! You truly know how to celebrate life! What could be lovelier than food, wine and books? I really don’t know!

    Anyway, I stopped by to invite you to be a part of the blog tour for my debut book, an inspirational romance titled ‘To Die Once, (Child of Grace Series, Book #1)’, which runs from April 5th through May 21st, 2014. I would love to have you be a part of it, if you have the time. 🙂 You can follow this link to read the book’s blurb (http://mautobeaperson.wordpress.com/to-die-once/). If you’re interested, please let me know, and I’ll send you a PDF copy of the e-ARC. Thank you for time! 🙂

    P.S. Sorry I contacted you like this. I searched for a more private way to reach you, but didn’t find any. You can remove this comment afterwards?

    1. Hi Miranda! Thank you so much for your comment and kind words! 🙂

      Just wanted to check and see if you got the email I sent you yesterday. Hope so!!

  18. Hello –
    I looked for a way to email you, but couldn’t find an address. I enjoyed your IFBC write-up. I was about to post an entry regarding Karen & Andrew as well. I wanted to know if it would be alright to use your image of them, with propoer attribution: Karen and Andrew | IFBC 2014. Image (c) The Curried Nut, 2014. (or however you would like).

    Thank you! wholefoodsexplorer.com

    1. Hi there! I sent you an email as well, but just in case it’s easier here -yes, that’s perfectly fine to use my picture, and the attribution looks great! 🙂 Thanks so much!
