Overview

I am a flexible worker who can adapt to your specifications--rewrites, song lyrics, proofreading--you name it. My standards are high, so you can trust your material to me and expect polished results. (I even proofread emails before sending!) Creativity and humor are my strengths as a writer, finding ways to connect with the heart of a reader. If you're seeking quality work with a personal flair, contact me!

Service Description

I am theologically trained with experience writing feature articles, book reviews, song lyrics, poetry and devotional/inspirational material. I'm a skilled proofreader with keen attention to detail, and coworkers in every job I've had have sought my talents before sending out finished copy. I have also transcribed audio interviews for publication, most involving non-native English speakers.

I have a knack for listening to what someone is trying to say, and then helping them express it with concision and style. My memory is "phonographic"--if I hear something once, I never forget it!

Some of my personal interests are yoga/meditation, animals, baseball, knitting, personality inventories, spirituality, and ethnic cuisine, to name a few. I have also lived and taught English overseas (Hong Kong), and have respect for and experience communicating with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
