I am a professional writer and editor available for short- or long-term projects. My portfolio includes nearly two thousand articles in national publications and online. In addition, I have more than twenty years of experience as an editor, including senior positions at McGraw-Hill, Thomas Publishing, and Rodale.

If you have a novel, story, thesis, annual report, press release, or other writing project you need polished, I can:

  • Correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and word usage
  • Check internal logic and thought flow for clarity
  • Find redundancies and inconsistencies
  • Ensure compliance with the specified stylebook

If you are preparing for an interview or a book tour, I can:

  • Give you techniques for developing confidence
  • Help you build your presentation skills
  • Show you how to get the most benefit from media exposure

For more information or a quote on a project, please get in touch:


Great job. Thanks again for all your help. You made it a very easy process for us.

Oh what you did with my work is absolutely marvelous! It is exactly what I wanted to say.
