As a writer and singer, I am finding my way through words.

Once upon a time, when I had much shorter hair, I recorded a couple of demos ... .
And my producer (the incomparable Kate McClanaghan at Sound Advice) insisted that I get a headshot. Yes, I know it seems odd to have a headshot to do voice work, but her reasoning was that as long as we voiceover folk were going to be repped by agents, we may as well have headshots just in case a casting director decided we'd be perfect for a walk-on role or some such. Chicago's a big film town. One never knows, right? (Trivia: My hair was red when that shot was taken. A Burgundy-like red. That was a fun color experiment.)
Well, apparently, you can have multiple blogs, but you can't have multiple profiles. So this one will have to suffice for every site. My Finding My Voice persona says: My dream is to get paid to sing. That dream is slightly complicated by two things: 1) I'm not a big fan of singing in public, and 2) Not many people get paid to sing. I figure, I'll focus on 1, and then maybe 2 will take care of itself. In the meantime, I'm a writer and editor. Mostly, I write and edit for other people, but someday, I'll find a way to get paid to write solely what I want to write. Until then, here we are. I write what I want, and you, hopefully, read it. But even if you don't, it's still the ultimate ego-trip. My The Cookie Queen's English persona says: It's always good to have more than one dream. And one of my others is to open a bakery someday. A cookie bakery. Hence my blog The Cookie Queen's English, a chronicle of cookies ... and the occasional muffin ... and scone ... and ... . And craigslist is crushing my writerly soul, which, really, needs no further explanation, does it?
