Author, Collaborative Writer, Editor - Learn More


What do you do?

As my son says, “Write, edit, and write some more.”

My nonfiction book projects allow me to combine my writing and editing skills in interesting ways. I write. I edit. I assist authors by helping them take their written or spoken messages from good to great.

I also write for magazines like Sisterhood and nonprofits like Awe Star Ministries and The Shelby Kennedy Foundation, sponsor of the National Bible Bee.

But the most important way I serve is by praying for these authors, speakers, and ministries. Together, we’ve watched God do some amazing things.

You might be a writer if, like Marti:

  • You write poetry when you’re barely old enough to print sentences.
  • You look forward to the term papers other students dread.
  • You manage to fit some form of creative writing into every college project.
  • Your mind takes constant road trips to visit new characters, plotlines, subheads, or titles.
  • You have at least 250 clever first lines for novels stored in your head.


You might be an editor if, like Marti:

  • You feel compelled to comment on billboards that contain grammatical errors.
  • You read the restaurant menu and notice spelling mistakes.
  • Your eye is immediately drawn to “it’s” used as a possessive.
  • You embrace your inner Spellchecker.
  • You own a T-shirt that reads, “I am the grammarian about whom your mother warned you.”
