Welcome to the website of
Nocturnal Muse,

Bev Sninchak
Author, Editor, & Blogger


Birthed in Virginia, but relocated to beautiful Colorado, I'm an eclectic soul who has many interests. Growing up, I was a military dependent who traveled a lot; so far I've visited eight countries and 28 U.S. states. If I could travel all the time, I would. 


I'm also a vibrant woman, devoted wife, proud parent, seasoned scribe, armchair philosopher, amateur metaphysician, tenacious survivor, life-long student, avid bibliophile, and rabid introvert. Eclectic and open-minded, I'm happiest at home (NOT in a crowd) writing, reading, crocheting, knitting, watching movies, gaming, and spending time with my talented artist husband, Paul..


Since May 1997, I've worked as a professional copywriter, author, copy editor, and writing instructor. In 2013, I added professional blogger to my creative toolbox. To date, my work has been published hundreds of times in print and online

Writing under the pen names of Bev Walton~Porter and Star Ferris, I've authored six books, including Aim To Write: Tips & Tricks for the Scribe Within, 
Sun Signs for WritersSecrets of the Professional FreelancerMending FencesHidden Fire, and Shadows of the Soul. In addition, I also co-authored The Complete Writer: A Guide To Tapping Your Full Potential. You can find these books on Amazon or you may order copies directly from the Books section on this site.

Finally, I've been editor and publisher of several e-zines over the years, including the award-winning e-zine for writers, Scribe & Quill, Pen & Pentacle, Inscriptions, and Scribes of the Goddess.
