I offer over 20 years of experience as a professional journalist, editor, magazine writer, book author, and writing coach. I am currently available for all levels of editing, from concept development to copyediting and proofreading, and am accepting projects both big and small, and short-term and long-term. I will adapt to a client's needs and style, whether that entails taking a pile of words and efficiently polishing it into clear, readable prose, or collaborating with the writer to help them find their voice. I am also available for all sorts of writing projects.
