I'm the author of the historical novel I Shall Be Near To You (Crown/Random House, 2014) which was a semi-finalist for the 2014 Goodreads Choice Award and is short listed for the 2014 Crook's Corner Literary Prize. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing (Fiction) and taught high school English for 7 years and several semesters of college level Composition. I love collaborating with other writers, helping them bring their ideas to fruition. I especially enjoy working with authors of character-driven historical and romantic fiction. I'm a sucker for spunky characters, unique voices, and love stories.
My strength is in helping authors define their vision and express it in an artful, clear, and organized fashion. I strive to help authors highlight, develop, and enhance key ideas, themes, events, and characters. I provide supportive, detailed, and focused feedback on content, structure, and grammar. You can count on me giving you an honest but tactful critique.

Everyone has something to say. I'm here to help you express it.
With a background in journalism, marketing, design, and philosophy, I combine intelligence and creativity to communicate complex ideas with clarity and impact.
I write and edit fast -- plus layout and design -- to accurately inform, entertain, or persuade, depending on client needs. My services cover a wide spectrum of print and online projects--including ebooks, marketing materials, press releases, blogs, web content, feature articles, PowerPoint/Keynote presentations, book manuscripts, academic papers . . . I work with businesses and individuals to creatively express their key messages, and I help promising first-time authors fine-tune manuscripts for publication.
An award-winning author, I love using the power and creativity of language to express intelligence, in all its forms--personal and professional, intellectual and emotional, corporate and academic.
Words and images for creative impact.
