meI’m a writer. And an editor who may or may not make mistakes on occasion … especially here, at The Flavored Word. I try to be impeccable, but I firmly believe you cannot edit your own work, which is why I hope you’ll forgive those aforementioned occasional mistakes.

I’m a non-niche journalist and have covered everything from major sporting events to national conventions and have written pieces on topics as diverse as “how to install gutters” (admittedly not my favorite piece) to “why the Sandy Hook tragedy prompted more women to buy guns.” Typically, my writing has a bit of a sarcastic flare, but I tone that when a more serious angle is needed.

Looking for a writer who can grab a reader’s attention and keep it for longer than that oh so crucial first 15 seconds? Get in touch—I’d love to hear about your project.

Here, at The Flavored Word, I write about whatever I want … some of which I hope you find entertaining and thought provoking. But you can find my work in a number of  other places (well, not Mars, not yet) including U.S. News & World Report, Edible Indy, Indianapolis Monthly and the Indianapolis Star among others. If you want to get a feel for the kind of articles I write (you know, the paying gigs) you can find a small sampling of my published works at ShaunaNosler.com which, admittedly, isn’t the best website in the out there but hey, my html knowledge is limited.

When I took my high school English A.P. exam, rather than stick with the provided suggestions I challenged the academic standard and submitted an essay on Flaubert’s Madame Bovary. It was a gamble but it paid off with a passing score that granted me a year’s worth of college English credit … I still write like that … I like to take chances to diversify myself … although my style is still definitely emerging.

Who knows, maybe we can work together some day. Thanks for reading.
