I've been writing since... forever. After getting a D in economics my freshman year of college, I transferred to the School of Journalism and never looked back. I've worked as a contract writer since leaving my corporate advertising job in 1998. Over the years, I've written about everything from leadership and the Akashic Records to fracking and diesel engines. I really get jazzed when I need to learn something new and translate it into a version that is easily digestible. And I love books and authors! If any of the services I offer sound like something you'd benefit from, shoot me an e-mail and let's make a connection!
All great writers use skilled editors to make their work even better. I work with both the AP and Chicago style guides and am happy to use one that you've developed. My goal is to preserve your voice through the process. It's important that your work sounds like you.
In addition to editing for articles, newsletters, blogs and white papers, I love working with authors to support their publishing goals. In this arena, there are several types of editing and it's important to know what you need. If you're unsure, e-mail me and we can figure it out together.
Whether your book requires help with structure, a thorough review of grammar, or a fresh set of eyes to evaluate flow and pace, I can polish your work so you can publish with pride.
No matter where you are in the process of writing your book, I have the skills to address any piece of it - from inception to creation. I collaborate with authors at various stages to bring their stories to the world. Whether it's creative brainstorming, manuscript analysis, or overcoming writer's block, I can help you create and publish your best work.
One of the aspects of writing I love the most is discovering how to communicate your message in a way that sounds like it came out of your mouth. This requires a little time for me to get to know you and an understanding of the nuance of language, which is a skill I've honed over my entire life. Let me create for you!

My curious nature and love of knowledge, combined with years of experience with search engines and libraries (yes, sometimes a project requires me to go old school), makes me an enthusiastic and efficient researcher. Let me handle the heavy lifting and provide you with the data you need to complete your project.
Over the decades I've, worked with a lot of clients. I've discovered that personalities matter. Communication is critical. And that I'm not a fit for everyone. That's why I offer a free consultation to discuss your project, communication style, expectations and priorities. This helps to ensure a smooth process for us both. To schedule an appointment, please shoot me an e-mail.
That's what everyone wants to know, right?
