Welcome!

My name is Roxanne Piskel and I am a writer and freelance editor.

As a writer, I started Unintentionally Brilliant, a personal blog featuring posts about single parenting, conversations with my son, living with depression, among other things. I also write short stories and am currently curating my first collection. I also occasionally contribute posts to World Moms Blog, a collaborative international website sharing stories of motherhood, culture, human rights, and social good from over 20 countries. My story, The Pendant, was published in the 2nd volume of Precipice, the literary anthology of Write on Edge.

As an editor, I partner with Bannerwing Books for proofreading services, and am a copy editor for Lifehack.org. I have edited for bloggers, such as Kelly Tirman and Growing Up Goofy, as well as novelists like Cameron D. Garriepy and Ericka Clay.
