For more than two decades, I’ve worked with corporations, executives, professors, public relations firms, consultants, analysts, and creative writers of fiction and memoir to craft words worth reading.

I have years of experience working with clients from beginning copy writers, to creative writers seeking feedback and direction, to corporate executives who have the ideas, but not the time—or desire—to craft every word themselves.

How does it work?

Send me your file or assignment (and breathe a sigh of relief). I’ll edit or write to your specifications, on deadline. You’ll receive your words, only better—scrubbed of typos, inconsistencies, and errors, and ready for you to further refine, finalize, or submit. And of course, I’m always available to answer questions, provide clarification, help you create a consistent style guide for your own use, or give you the encouragement you need to keep writing.
