Service Description

I've been published in two books about animation (Animated Movie Guide and Animation Art) and contributed to several websites. I've supplied book reviews, taglines for comics, obituaries, accurate film credit listings, and spent several years as an administrator and key contributor to Muppet Wiki. Recent projects include liner notes for Thunderbean Animation's Cartoons Go to War DVD, for the Plaza Classic Movie festival website and program book, and the essay "Muppets and Money" in the anthology Kermit Culture (McFarland, 2009).

Pop culture subjects are my fortee, but I have a strong background in English literature and analysis as well (with both a BA and MA). I'm also experienced in cleaning up rough translations from non-native speakers and other forms of editing. I can inject dry factual copy with a wry sense of humor, present scholarly analysis, or creative nonsense. I've written handouts for English tutors and can adjust educational content to various age levels. Let me craft the text you need!
