My name is Shelby. I’d shake your hand and offer you a steaming cup of my favorite dark roast coffee if I could.

I am a native of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I’m a writer, copyeditor, and proofreader on a mission to share my words and love of life with you. My fierce love of literature, passion for writing, and desire to live a fulfilled, happy life keeps me focused.

With a bachelor’s degree in English, I proofread and copyedit full-time while managing this website and all its contents.

I believe in the significance of effort.
What you put into your life enables and crafts your fate.

Not everyone will agree with the path you choose – I’ve been there. Fortunately, with effort and passion, you can achieve your goals. With that knowledge in tow, I am continually working towards the future I envision for myself.

Are you?

To put it simply, I am:

  • A writer, proofreader, and copyeditor with a passion for life and two novels half-written
  • A lover of books, waterfalls, and trails that lead to outstanding views
  • A coffee enthusiast with a tremendous love for unique mugs

My life is a journey on which I am pleased to embark. I do hope you’re here to stay. Let’s pursue this quest towards a fulfilled life together!
