I am a sahm (stay at home mom) mom of 8, passionately interested interests! I am restoring a 100 year old farm house, homeschooling the six kids still at home, raising Nigerian Dwarf Dairy goats, and trying to change our lives and those around us by the decisions and choices we make daily. I love reading, spinning fiber, sewing, cooking, writing, painting, crafting, antiquing...and just about anything shiny can grab my interest for a bit..Well maybe I am not that bad.

I have a weakness for roses, chocolate and LUSH bath products..and soap boxes. Welcome to my life. :)

For information about my freelance writing and photography contact me: Marye Audet

My cookbook,Everything Cookies and Brownies was released in September 2009 by Adams Media. I do write extensively about food, coffee, and tea but have written about many different things including historic home restoration, frugal living, herbs and natural medicine, and many other subjects.

I was a Sr. Writer and Editor for LovetoKnow until August 2011 but I am best known as a food writer across the web.

If you would like a product review contact me at the above link to discuss it. I have reviewed retaurants, food products, appliances, home decor, books, and many other items.

I do not promise a great review of your product but I do promise to be honest and fair.

Advice for Would Be Writers

Finally, I often get emails asking me for advice on how to make money, how to get started as a writer, and whether you can make money at it. In the interest of my busy inbox I have written the following. If you are looking for advice on writing, here it is. Please do not email me with questions about how to get started because I really don't have more to say on the subject. This truly is my best advice:

Advice for Beginning Writers

Yes, you can make a living as a freelance writer, and you can certainly make money on HubPages.

The most important advice I have for anyone who wishes to become a freelance writer is that they learn the craft of writing. As an editor I see horrific mistakes made by writers who claim to be professionals. Review the rules of grammar and use spell check. Write your article, read it, and revise as needed to make sure you are submitting your best work. Also, work on speed. If you cannot research and write a quality, completely unique 600 word article in less than an hour or so you really are not going to be able to make a decent living as a content writer.

Finally, don't give yourself away. Do some research and find out what a fair price is for your articles. Don't just take five dollars for an article with the mentality that "at least I was paid." You are either a professional or you aren't and you should be fairly paid for the work you do. Keep at it. No one got rich overnight writing on the Internet.

Expect to take at least two years of hard, consistent work to get established and start making some real money.

      Why have all of my hubs been completely deleted except maybe 20 of them out of over 500? Just wondering.  If they were unpublished I would get it, ie: I dont belong here any more... but completely wiped out? It's showing my traffic at 178 today.
