About Me

I am a word nerd. A logophile.
I love the sound, the feel, the texture of words. I enjoy stringing words together then pulling them apart, tossing them around and shaping and molding them into something memorable for years to come. Words live on long after we are gone. Words connect the past to the present and the present to the future. Words are things that breathe life into the world.

Writing for me is breathing. It is something that I’ve
done since as far back as I can remember. Everything
that happens I want to record it. Because our lives are
as individual as fingerprints, I believe that everyone has
a story (stories) to tell. From our first breath to our last, there are a million stories told a million different ways
that need to be told. I’m here to help you tell your story. I’m here to help you leave an indelible impression on the minds of others. I’m here to help you leave a legacy
worthy leaving.

Stephanie is a master at her trade, and extremely efficient. She has helped both me and other family members
over the years. During the recent loss of my dad and my emotions were all over the place, Stephanie showed a great deal
of compassion as she composed the obituary for my family. We are grateful for her services and were ecstatic with the
final project. I am happy with the services that Stephanie has provided for me over the years.  – Nicole Nelms
