"One of the best freelancers I've ever worked with!" - Professor of Management *
I'm an award-winning writer and experienced editor known for my crisp, clean style and exceptional flow. I received my PhD from Yale (with honors), worked briefly in finance, earned tenure at UT-Austin, and now teach part-time at an Ivy League university. I've published two scholarly books with prestigious presses plus over a dozen peer-reviewed articles. Not everyone can edit scholarly work, but I can... better than anyone.
I can also help with admissions, personal statements, grad applications, and cover letters. I've supervised dozens of master's theses and doctoral dissertations, edited countless professional letters, and polished scores of winning fellowship proposals.

Knowledgeable and talented editor with more than 15 years of experience editing magazine articles, reports, and book-length manuscripts. Writer of essays, feature stories, Web blurbs, and test items.

I'm a freelance copywriter, book author, and editor who has written 13 commercially published non-fiction print books (either under my own name or as a ghostwriter.) I have many years of experience writing marketing and website SEO copy for many industries including retail, food, medicine, dentistry, law, IT, fashion, adult, education, real estate, and non-profit. I have also written articles for national magazines such as Woman's Day, Travel Savvy, and Medical Economics, and I have written ebooks and online articles as well. Additionally, I'm a magna cum laude college graduate with a B.A. in English, but I prefer to write in a conversational style. I often line edit books, which usually includes structural "book doctoring" and advice as to the "publishability" of a book.
I'M HAPPY TO RECEIVE INVITATIONS FOR PROJECTS, BUT NO BARGAIN OR BULK PROJECTS, PLEASE. If you pay $10 per article, $20 per hour, 1 cent per word, or $500 for a whole book, it's too low for me. Sorry, and thanks.

I write clear, concise, compelling copy for websites, blogs and articles. I translate complex concepts into simple prose that anyone can understand. I'm an experienced professional who delivers clean, crisp copy, and does it on time.
I'm a former journalist, a former practicing attorney, and a former legal blogger writing on small business topics. I have written hundreds of articles, legal briefs, memoranda and pieces of correspondence.
My speciality is writing web copy, blog posts and marketing materials for lawyers. Because of my background, I understand the law, the lawyers who practice it, and the ethical constraints on marketing legal services.
Not a lawyer? I love to learn about new products and businesses. My other writing (and life) interests include food and nutrition (especially vegetarian and organic), small businesses, sewing and crafts, fine arts, bicycling and travel.
