Natural Health & Herbal Healing:
Writing, Recipes & Editing
Hi, I'm Annie, a Sonoma County native who stays active by hiking the rolling hills and roaming the coastal cliffs. As a food and wine writer who's spent years bottling my family's own wine, I love tasting new flavors and have recently taken to fermenting.
I found freelancing as a fulfilling creative outlet and as a practical way to earn money without needing to be tethered to one spot. This revelation happened when I was hired as a Culture & Lifestyle writer in Paris, France for FrenchMorning. I made a little money while living in Paris, obtaining my MA in Creative Writing from the University of Kent and traveling from time to time.
My BA in English Literature and Linguistics as well as TEFOL certification and teaching background were key elements in my career pursuits, equpping my stylistic articles with proper grammer and eloquency. My articles can be found on sites including FrenchMorning, Wine Road, LIWTS, Absolute Xtracts, OutThereSR and my own creation, live38North.com.
This career choice has opened up the possibilities to work with international businesses in translation, editing, proofreading and creation. My work can be found on the sites of iuvo, Nirvana, Bi-silque and ARCHYI. And, I am currently managing all content creation for FEMNA. I do all my own stunts too. Meaning, I may not be a photographer but I take all of my own photos.
When I'm not typing away behind my laptop, I can probably be found at Annadel Park, waterside at the Russian River, somewhere in Europe or in my home-grown garden.
