About Me

I’m an animal lover, D&D nerd, and writing geek.

Who Am I?

That’s always the big question, isn’t it? Luckily for you, I’ve done the self-reflection to answer it.

Early in my writing journey (a.k.a. high school), I was the nerd with bad bangs and Harry Potter glasses. That’s because I’ve always cared more about what’s in my head than on it. My whole life, I’ve been analytical and detail-oriented, which made me perfect for editing. But I’ve also got creative juice in my veins—always flowing and eager to put words to paper.

After almost 10 years working in the industry, I’ve discovered I’m not just a writer/editor; I’m a leader too. My approach to leadership is a gentle one. I may not be the charismatic leader of nations, but I’m the type who meets you where you’re at and builds from there. I listen and learn from my teammates, considering them equals, then figure out how to best guide them.

Core Characteristics


Not in an unsettling way. I think differently, which means I think outside the box. You can count on me for creative, new ideas.


Crafting stories comes naturally to me. Whether I’m weaving a new world or just telling you about my weekend, you’re in for a wild ride!


I care about people. I want to see those around me thrive mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

Key Skills


Being the neurotically detailed person I am, I have skills in proofreading, copyediting, stylistic editing, and substantive editing.


Over the past 10 years, I have sharpened my skills in copywriting, technical writing, screenwriting, and video game dialogue.

Project Management

I’ve managed diverse teams and led brainstorming sessions, all while ensuring quality standards and deadlines are met.


How do you pronounce your name?

It’s easier than you think: sha-ray-ah (just the way it’s spelled).

Where did your name come from?

My parents named me after an Amy Grant song.

How long have you been writing?

Before I even knew how to properly spell. But professionally? 10 years.

What type of writing do you do?

All sorts! Half of my professional experience is in technical writing, but the other half is in a variety of creative writing avenues, including script writing, comic books, and video game writing (including codex entries and dialogue).

Where did you go to school?

I did my post-secondary through MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. My degree is a Bachelor of Applied Communications in Professional Writing.
