Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $66

If you want a writer who establishes a conversation with readers, injects a sense of humor, and crafts poignant, thought-provoking pieces, you've found her.

While I excel at research, I prefer to follow the wise advice to 'write what you know.' As a writer, a teacher, and (above all) a wife and mother, I specialize in writing about:

* education
* children
* parenting
* family life
* food
* Christianity
* music
* inspired living

I hold a B.A. in English and Creative Writing with a minor in Communication Arts and spent a decade...

Service Description

I only submit proposals for jobs that are the best match regarding my skills, knowledge, interest, and expertise--time is the most precious gift we have, and I am not in the business of wasting it. I guarantee clear communication, a fair price, and a reasonable turnaround.

Read on to learn more about the services I provide to clients.

Editing: I'm stunned at the vast number of files sent to me for review that have already "undergone" some sort of editing but still contain innumerable errors. Clients stick with me after they see the night-and-day difference. I provide proofreading, copyediting, and substantive editing services.
