Pear Tree April 2021

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” — Coco Chanel

Hey Gang! I am now semi-retired, and that’s no April Fool’s joke! By semi-retired, I mean that I cut down from writing for five magazines, to just two! I’m also taking time for art classes and applying to academies to become an animal behaviorist!

However, Pear Tree will still be going strong, just on a part-time basis. (Though there may be a waiting list for ghost writing).

Perhaps you’d like to be an author? I can help you write your first book. Perhaps you need a professional blogger? I’ve got you covered. Step into your new story today! Let me know how I can help.

While we are still in the pandemic here in the USA, we continue to be cautious. At Pear Tree, I’m happy to work with you via phone calls; or at your home wearing a mask and social distancing.

View the next section “What Can I Do For You?” to see what I can do for you and your business! Whether it’s blogging or writing or working on your book – I can help you get your not-boring life down on paper!

Contact Pear Tree today:

Note: We can work remotely during COVID, via ZOOM or telephone. This has been working out great. Why not start a new journey from the comforts of your own home? Get that book written today!


During these stressful times it’s hard to think about dreams, or business in general. But if you want to get your mind off of things, writing a book may be a great idea. And I can help you. Shoot me an email at:

I’m also available for ghost writing, blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates.

Rates are reasonable, and the first hour phone (or in-person) consultation is free to potential new clients. Every client who uses Pear Tree services will be featured in the newsletter (unless for whatever reason they don’t want to be in the newsletter, as privacy is respected).


Current publications I am writing for are: Vitamin Retailer Magazine, Grey Journal, Trenton Journal, and Things Women Want.
