About Melinda

Many days start in the garden, and I'm not afraid to roll up my sleeves, dig into the details and stay with a project until it's grown through to maturity. 


So whether I'm growing dinner plate dahlias, zinnias or  Cascade hops (they're a great climbing ornamental) or interviewing a CEO, orthopedic surgeon, the next manufacturing innovator, or writing your next blog post, you'll get my full attention and we'll tell your story.


I've spent over 30 years in the publishing industry and done just about every job (except book binding). I know the process, and it never gets old. 

A little more about me-

My new book Late Snow and Hellebore published in 2019 is my first full-length book of poetry. Check out the poetry book website at

I'm curious about everything. Whether interviewing university professors about sustainable energy or government officials on pending legislation, doctors on mental health treatment advances, lawyers about the American PRO Act, screen printers, embroiderers, bankers, rock stars, artists or opera divas, my stories have taken me into just about every sector. I know how to listen and ask focused questions. The best compliment a client can give me is this: 
You made my life easier, and you get what I'm doing.
