Me Fail English? That’s Unpossible.

I’m asked at least once a week if I know another Orr. I married into the name, so I usually don’t. 

Writing your own "About" page seems narcissistic. Yet when I view other websites, the "About" page is usually the one I click first. I'm not sure if it's voyeurism or simply an intrinsic desire to understand people. 

I cringe on the inside, and sometimes groan loudly on the outside, when I read something that is poorly written. Writing is not for everyone, just like standing in front of a class full of teenagers teaching sex education is not for the weak-hearted. Luckily, we all have a day job that we're usually proficient at. This is mine. 

I play with words in all sorts of ways - through feature articles and web content, in my new children's book series, in a commercial fiction novel I'm slaving away at and lots of to-do lists for my husband and four children. I write what I know, and some things I don’t. I'm perpetually inspired and moved and amused. I try to convey this in my writing.

If you'd like to know more about my career history, you'll find it within my writing services page.

Thanks for visiting!
