I offer freelance writing and photography, as well as workshops. Please see below.


“Every Picture Tells a Story” Workshop

A two-hour creative writing workshop stressing the importance of photography in writing. (Taught previously at the Jefferson Barracks VA.)

I’ll reference Ann Lamott’s book “Bird by Bird – Instructions on Writing and Life” as part of the workshop curriculum, including my photography, and writing aids for “hands-on” class exercises. Please email for pricing.


Book Cover Photography; Photos for Publications

My personal photo gallery is available for use in your book cover design. Visit Ocean Spirit Photography’s facebook page for ideas. Or let me know what you’re looking for, and I’ll find it in my collection. Price – Negotiable.

(FOLLY BEACH DANCES won the 2015 Da Vinci Eye Award for excellence in book cover design. In 2013 and 2014, I won First Place for Photography, from the Missouri Humanities Council and Warrior Arts Alliance in conjunction with the Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors anthologies.)


Inspirational Readings

I’ll share my essay on finding faith entitled “Finding My Religion” to church congregations, or recovery groups. It was recently published in Whispering Angel Books, Soul Survivors – From Trauma to Triumph.

  1. Hi Sheree,

    I met you when I was temporarily working at the Siteman check-in desk. We talked about photography and our love of cats… I came across your business card in my wallet and wanted to say hello and ask how you are doing. I signed up for email updates and am excited to read some of your posts.

    I have been dabbling with writing a series of children’s books. I have the stories in my head and just need to get them down. Maybe you could mentor me?

    Take care!
    Diana Madrid

    • Dear Diana,

      It is so nice to hear from you. How are you cat babies?

      We should talk about your project? Feel free to email, call me or even connect with me through Ocean Spirit Photography on facebook.

      Hope you are doing well.
