Naomi Mathews Bio

Freelance Gardening Writer
by Naomi Mathews

email: Lanao2@aol.com

I currently write "Container Gardening" articles for GardenGuides.com on a regular basis. For this same web site, I am writing an ongoing series of "State Flower" articles. These articles provide readers with a brief history of how each state flower in the United States became the "official" state flower, as well as how to grow these honored flowers in your own garden.

I have been a Contributing Editor for suite101.com since 1998. For this web site I write monthly gardening articles on my chosen topic, "Butterfly and Hummingbird Gardening." My articles are inspired from both experience and in-depth research. All of these articles are "link sensitive" and are usually accompanied by graphics of butterflies, hummingbirds, and of course -- flowers! I thoroughly enjoy my writing and ongoing affiliation with Suite 101.com.


October 29, 2000

Writing has always been one of my passions! I recall writing stories, poetry, and anything else of interest almost as soon as I learned to read and write.
It was only natural that I followed and enjoyed a long career as an executive secretary. After leaving my "downtown" career to remain at home, I opened and operated a secretarial service from my home for 12 years. During this time I composed, edited, and typed hundreds of writing projects for clients from many livelihoods--from one-page letters to full  length novels. I thoroughly enjoyed using my writing and editing abilities in this area.
After closing my business, I later began to “seek my dream” to seriously pursue freelance writing opportunities. As I saw the Internet rapidly growing, I realized both the need and potential for freelance writers in this arena. I also knew I wanted to be a part of it!

In addition to freelance gardening writing, I am currently writing my first romance novel set on the scenic Oregon Coast. I have attended various writers’ workshops on AOL and completed an Internet fiction writing course. I also completed a Writers' Digest correspondence course on "Fiction Writing" in my spare time some years ago.
Other interests and hobbies I enjoy include reading, antique shopping, traveling and camping with my husband, and spending time with my four grown children and their families.
