Time to Write

In 2003, I self-published Hollywood and Catholic Women: Virgins, Whores, Mothers, and Other Images, which evolved from my masters thesis. After the University of South Carolina used the text in 2007, I decided to update the work to include three new movies and two cable television series.

The process took nearly two years. New films include The Godfather Part III, Dead Man Walking, and Doubt. Noting that the portrayal of Catholic women was improving, particularly on cable, I added The Sopranos and Saving Grace to the mix. Additionally new to this 2nd edition of Hollywood and Catholic Women is the inclusion of photographs from the films and series.

I also have experience as a freelance writer, working in both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors. Check out the Portfolio section for examples of projects and rates.
