Overview

Over 15 years experience as an editor, including product development work, enhances my skills as a writer, helping me focus the plot and/or structure that guides readers through the story or learning adventure. I am task oriented and enjoy seeing a job well done. I currently freelance edit, write, and compile for inspirational gift books and journals. I also have coached, edited, or otherwise collaborated on personal memoirs and devotionals.

Service Description

Do you have a story to tell? An experience to share? A solution to reveal? Do you struggle to put these things down in writing? I can help.

Using my editorial and product development skills, I will layout your ideas in a clear and comprehensive way that engages the reader and brings them to a satisfying conclusion. Whether you want to tell a story or sell an idea, bring your thoughts, plots, and notes to me for organization, expansion, and augmentation.

My experience includes collaborating on themes, researching content, arranging flow and style, elaborating on concepts, and processing the final manuscript through proofing and typesetting. I have worked primarily as a freelance editor for gift publishing companies, and previous to that with service companies in administrative or marketing roles (see below).

Examples of my work include thematic journals and gift books, yearly guided journals, devotionals, and a devotional memoir. I am currently working on an inspirational memoir to encourage women to win at life.
