Full circle: a nurse coming back to writing

 Hello everyone! 

It's been a long time since I posted here and I have some exciting updates!

Since we last spoke, I have gone to nursing school and am now working as a registered nurse on a cardiology floor. Doing an accelerated nursing program in the middle of a pandemic was intense, so that's part of why I've been quiet for so long. Now, I am coming back to writing, but my focus is going to be a bit different from here on out.

I am pivoting from book blogging to freelance writing. With my newfound expertise and passion for health and medical writing, I am focusing on cultivating freelance work in these areas. However, I am still a book lover at heart. I also still have all my experience from my time working on this blog and interning in publishing, so I am taking book-related content and editing jobs still too!

If you have book or literature-related content, copy, or editing gigs, I do still hope you will reach out. 

I anticipate continuing to be fairly quiet on this blog, but I wanted to leave some other ways you can find me.

Linkedin: Howling Turtle Media

This is my freelance-focused Linkedin (I have one that is more geared towards my nursing career too). I have decided to keep the Howling Turtle name in this new phase of my writing business. I will be creating a Howling Turtle Media freelancing website soon and will update this post with the link to that once it is live.


I'd love to connect with you on Twitter! I'll be sharing my published projects and thoughts on writing and healthcare.


I still check the email for this blog, so if you'd like to reach out, send a message to:

I hope you all have been well and that you'll join me as I set out on this new phase of my writing life.
