Profile Summary

I'm seeking publications or individuals in need of feature articles, creative and contextual interviews, book/album/film/TV reviews and essays. Clients can count on my many years of experience in writing, editing, proofreading, writing press releases and such. After working as a Proofreader/Research Librarian for about a decade, then changing course to help grow the business of an independent bookseller/distributor, I returned to the former company as a Technical Writer. Now I focus primarily on freelance writing and manuscript consultation for authors who want astute analysis, feedback and assessment, as well as content editing/rewriting/reformatting/reworking in preparation for publication.
