Service Description

Writing, training and consulting. I work with friends and partners on specific projects, such as magazines and books.

I am a writer, although I can do conceptual editing (not "copyediting" after the fact). Our mother-daughter team also now includes graphic design and other art skills . . .

I offer experience writing for newspapers (Los Angeles Times), editing, book production, marketing and publicity (Wildside Press), and managing, editing and writing many nonfiction projects ranging from local magazines and books to school and library texts for grades K-12. I have also written many introductions for works of classic fiction, and prepared cover copy and promotional materials for more than 100 books.

I am an award-nominated fiction writer. I am currently working, and have published three novels, one short fiction collection, and dozens of short stories, novelettes, and one novella.

I also have more than ten years of experience as a nonprofit executive and fundraiser. In terms of grantwriting, I have an excellent success rate in obtaining government grants (local, state, federal) and from major private foundations and corporations - amounts range from $5,000 to over $11 million.

In addition, I am an artist and have done commercial art since I graduated from college (more than 200 book covers, website, logo design). My daughter is also a talented artist majoring in graphic design and we have now formed a team! (I'm keeping this here - because she "retired early")...
