I'm captivated by the simple beauty of an idea expertly expressed through the written word. I'm passionate in my pursuit of effective communication through the thoughtful construction of phrases.
I write for the thrill of putting pen to paper and, in a digital world, keystrokes to the screen.
I write to share thoughts and ideas...both mine and yours.

I'm captivated by the simple beauty of an idea gracefully expressed through the written word. I'm passionate in my pursuit of effective communication through the thoughtful construction of phrases. I insist on the accuracy of facts and the proper use of writing conventions. Well...not when it's time for a play on words or double entendre!
Tess studied English and Communications through high school and college. She landed her first writing job while just a junior in high school, crafting ad copy for a chain of high end jewelry stores in Phoenix. For the next 12 years, Tess developed marketing materials, wrote press releases and advertorials, penned copy for product packaging, composed scripts for sales personnel and television commercials.
For the last 20 years, Tess has worked alongside her
successful commercial photographer/videographer husband, Ken Howie. Together they've produced television and print ads, video marketing presentations, catalogs and brochures for discerning advertising clients nationwide. Presently, Tess is writing the script for Ken's latest documentary film.
Now a resident of North Dakota, having followed her talented husband back to his childhood home, Tess writes and edits marketing and media content for a new group of clients. She enjoys volunteering for a handful of non-profit organizations and churches, writing grants and promotional material.
