Service Description

I have been writing as a hobby for my entire life and it has led me to a career I truly enjoy. Whether I'm writing an e-mail to a penpal across the ocean or submitting a researched piece of nonfiction, I put thought and consideration into every sentence and punctuation mark. I have advised friends, family and others on research papers, essays, business proposals and composition. In less formal instances, I may help out with some words for a birthday card or even wedding vows. I know the power of words because I have been passionate about them since I learned to speak and write.
