I am not someone who hangs a shingle out on Elance and purports to be an editor. I am a certified book editor with in-house publishing experience.

I am a multi-award winning writer, having received 45 awards in the past 23 years. My work has been published in both large and small newspapers and magazines, including Good Housekeeping, The New York Times, USA Today, the Oswego County Business Magazine, Today's CNY Woman, New York State Magistrates magazine, any many others.
