SPARKLE + SUBSTANCE

Hi, I’m Shelby! A writer and business owner living the dream in Madison, Wisconsin. I love a lot of things—corgis, coconut milkshakes, stripes, palm trees—but more than anything, I love to create expressive, colorful lifestyle content for national and regional magazines.

Through my powerful, descriptive, highly-sensory writing, I transport readers into the topic I’m covering—I specialize in travel, in-depth profiles, décor, home tours, cultural trends, shopping, and human-interest features.

I don’t write articles. I tell stories.

I don’t write flat copy. I infuse it with an authentic voice.

I don’t scratch the surface. I give each piece a soul.

I’m not your typical lifestyle writer. I’m not just going to share some recommendations or one-dimensional thoughts and call it a day. I tell each story with my whole heart, diving in beyond the first impressions. A draw, a tug on the heartstrings that will rate high with readers and keep them coming back for more.

As a highly-sensitive person, I truly notice things. I smell things, taste things, and hear things in a profound, vibrant way. Life is simply a richer experience for me, and that’s what comes across in my writing.

I will create stories for your publication that will jump off the page and into the hearts and minds of your readers.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s start working together today to create transformative, soulful content your readers will love.
