Greetings from the East Bay Area! My name is Aly Brown, and I live with my family in a rural town just outside of San Francisco.

As a published and represented author (BookEnds, LLC) and a newspaper journalist and copy editor, I see the world as a place full of stories. The best part of being a novelist is creating them, but the best part of being a journalist is sharing the ones that already exist.

With a passion for words, style guides and crossing out errant commas, I can match brand voice while communicating complex information in digestible prose. I have over 10 years of editorial experience, and my background also entails freelance writing and editing; SEO and content marketing; website design, upkeep and troubleshooting; and project coordination.
