Aloha! I'm Sally Stratso.

I'm a writer, book reviewer, standup comedienne, actress, and animal lover. I live in Azle, Texas, with my husband and our dogs: Rocco, Annora, and Trinity.

I'm excited to share my love of writing with you!

My background

288 of my articles/columns were recently added to the University of North Texas Portal to Texas History.

My work has been published in Law Enforcement Today, Guideposts Magazine, Indie Slate, Lemons Newspapers, North Shore News, The Sanger Courier, Bastrop Daily Enterprise, The Denton Record-Chronicle, The Plano Business and Community News, Equus Magazine, Texas Shoreline News, Twist & Twain, and HauntedHawaii.com, among others.

I have performed at comedy clubs in Denton, Arlington, and Dallas, Texas, also Waikiki, Hawai’i.  My screen credits include episodes of Walker, Texas Ranger, PCW Wrestling, Hawaii Five-0, and Adam Devine’s House Party; feature films such as Charlie & the Block, Hitman, The Riff, Holiday in Her Heart, Painted Hero, and Serving Sara,  Commercials include Nike Superbowl, Marcus Cable, and Disney Aulani Resort, among others.

I am also a retired college instructor, having taught at both a four-year university and community colleges.  I taught U.S. History, U.S. Government, Texas History, Texas Government, Creative Writing, and I am qualified to teach Diplomacy and Military Studies.

I am presently a freelance copywriter; I offer proofreading, editing, tutoring, book reviews, press releases, Powerpoint creations, ESL, and obituaries. 30 years of experience.  Prices negotiable depending on assignment.

I have also been trained extensively in research, specifically Open Source Intelligence Gathering.  My reading speed is 1,187 words per minute with comprehension.

I can compose articulate and insightful language that accurately describes your vision, whether this vision is website copy, a book, stories, newspaper features and columns, magazine articles, and screenplays/scripts.  As I learned in my English Ph.D background, "audience, purpose, and occasion" are of utmost importance, whether your goal is to educate, inform, or entertain.
