Affordable, Experienced Grant Writer and Consultant for your Non-profit Agency

If you follow this photo blog you already know that that I run a French Alps and Provence Tour company with my British partner. 

But you may not know that I am also a professional grant writer for non-profit agencies in the United States. Before moving to France part-time, I had a very successful and thriving grant writing consulting business in Los Angeles. Since I wanted to dedicate more time to family, travels, and creative pursuits (like this blog), I downsized my consulting business and now only choose non-profits and causes that I am most passionate about. As a result, I have literally cut my normal rates to about 1/3 of what they were in Los Angeles. I am back in the U.S. now but still work remotely via phone and internet. I have clients all over the United States.

I am also a Non-Profit Consultant and Coach. I work independently and also through

If you are interested in hiring a grant writer and non-profit expert with 30+ years of experience at a ridiculously low rate, please contact me on my website or comment on this post with contact information:

Giant Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly - Florida

I raise Monarch butterflies but this time I was surprised by a new butterfly in our garden - the Giant Yellow Swallowtail Butterfly.  I arrived quite by accident just after the butterfly had emerged from its cocoon and could not fly yet. It was still drying its wings so I was able to let it sit on my hand and take photos. Look at the beauty of this lovely creature and all the amazing color.
