Service Description

Because I taught writing at a large state university for fifteen years, including Writing for the Mass Media, Business and Professional Writing, Writing the Novel, Technical Writing, Expository Writing, Composition, and English Grammar, I can handle just about any writing project. My editing skills are exceptional; in fact, I train the copy editors at work, both here in the US and offshore.

Whatever you've written, I'll make it better. My own articles are in print and online, and I've proofread books for real, established publishers.

A few of my credits:

Editor, California Medical Marijuana Dispensary and Grower's Guidebook, July 2012 publication

Author, Twenty Women Who Changed American History, online continuing education course at universalclass.com, June 2012

Editor, Ditch. Dare. Do!, William Arruda and Deb Dib, July 2012 publication

Editor of books and workshop presentations for best-selling author and internationally known keynote speaker Fawn Germer, including The Ah-Hah! Moment and Pearls: Powerful Wisdom from Powerful Women

Former copy editor, St. Petersburg Times (now Tampa Bay Times)

Former proofreader, Food Network and Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks, including Eat Well, Lose Weight and Snack Attack: Fun Recipes for Kids to Make

Editor, The Men Made of Stone, by Logan Lo, available on Amazon

Proofreader, The Underground History of American Education, by John Taylor Gatto, published by the Oxford Village Press.
