Meet Terra

As a college student, I studied what I love—words, stories, and understanding ‘the big picture.’ A liberal arts degree in history and English meant I had to talk my way into every job. Then I had to back it up by learning quickly, problem-solving, and consistently delivering quality work. As it turns out, sharp critical thinking and strong communication skills do go a long way.

My diverse career experiences include working executive support at a living history museum, as a legal assistant at an elder law firm, and in marketing research and production for a commercial real estate brokerage. Winning an essay contest was the tipping point for re-writing my own story. I made freelance writing my full-time vocation in 2012 when I set out on my own as Sudden Write Turn Freelance Writing.

Writing for me is more than a skill or a career; writing is essential to life.

I love words and all forms of storytelling. I find my inspiration in nature, the arts, history, books, music, movies, and, of course, people. I fill my personal well with the simple pleasures of life, by quietly sipping wine on my porch, going out dancing until 4AM,  raising monarch butterflies, or hiking an Adirondack mountain trail.
