Since 2000, I've helped dozens of writers, both seasoned and new authors, get their manuscripts, blog-posts and/or websites up to or exceeding publishing standards – and I've done so by continually putting my attention on what my clients care about:

  • Working closely together with you from the start, I clearly identify and then center my attention on achieving the results you’re looking for. I work diligently to get the book, blog-post or web-copy you’ve always wanted.    
  • I focus intently on getting your truest, most authentic voice out there for your readers.
  • I apply all I have to offer to each client’s manuscript, blog-post or web-copy – including many years of professional editing experience, five years of teaching college English and psychology to thousands of college students, and a finely tuned sense of intuition (based on 45 years of meditation) – so the completed manuscript, blog-post or web-copy is the compelling, streamlined, reader-friendly material you’ve always desired to share with the world.
