Service Description

I have been a published writer since 2003. For adults I have written inspirational and informative articles for ministry and parenting newsletters and web content for various organizations. For children I have written early reader stories for a private school’s reading program, fiction and nonfiction stories and articles for children’s magazines, and a nonfiction picture book that was published in 2010. I have even taught a class on how to become a more effective writer.

I have edited manuscripts, articles, web content, pamphlets, newsletters, business letters, and college application essays. If you are looking for an effective and courteous professional who will get your project done on time (or earlier), then contact me, a proven Word Wrangler. Your happiness is my goal.
