Service Description

As a trustworthy professional, you can count on me to do a thorough job within defined parameters, communicate with you about the work from start through finish, and deliver what you ask for.

I have the rare quality of an equal balance of creative and technical skill, able to write complex material in a way that is easy for the average person to grasp, words infused with fun and human qualities, without overly scientific tones. You won't find my work slathered with jargon, or leaving readers scratching their heads, in search of the message.

I have a B.A. in Business Management with a marketing emphasis, and career experience that has shaped my skills in business writing and promotion. I can copy edit a scientific white paper, or conceptualize a brochure for your small business. I can proofread your book or book proposal, or write an "About" page for your website.

My special knowledge includes these topics:

- art and photography
- children's material
- plants, animals, minerals
- spiritual topics (traditional Christian and New Age/New Earth)
- business management and marketing
- creativity and personal expression

Please ask me more about what I can do for you!
