Profile

Thirty years of editing experience, paired with rock-solid writing and design skills, means I can help you at any stage. From manuscript evaluation to proofreading, I take care to retain your voice and ensure your message is clear, concise and compelling so you truly connect with your reader. 

I've collaborated with small-press and self-publishing authors as well as academics, publishers, non-profit organizations, government agencies and businesses on a wide assortment of subjects. I've worked on everything from books and magazines to business reports and social media. 

Whether you want to educate, entertain, persuade, promote or tell a riveting story, whether your project is large or small, I help you make the most of your words.
