Kathryn Mora
For over 20 years, I’ve worked in print and online media on a variety of subjects as a freelance writer on in-depth feature stories, slice-of-life articles, ghostwriting, and editing, along with other unique projects. It’s always exciting and fulfilling to work with a new client and their project. Inevitably, I learn about a subject I knew nothing about previously.
