Service Description

My passion lies with fiction writing. I'm excellent at not only editing prose for typos, but I excel at providing positive criticism about plot, story and character development. I've been working on several novels of my own, and have completed mulitple short stories. I've also studied screenwriting for my undergrad and graduate degrees and have written numerous screenplays, which vary in subjects for science fiction to romance and action and adventure.

As far as news or article editing, I've been trained in the AP sytle of news writing through the military's Defense Information School, and I earned the Distinguished Graduate award in my class, and was the only one to earn over 95 percent for the entire course. I worked for several years as a military journalist doing layout and design, writing news features and news stories, and photographing people and aircraft. I also worked for a small-town newspaper.
