Service Description

Writing is my passion and with passion comes a commitment to both my clients and to myself. I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Windsor, ON and a Photojournalism degree from Loyalist College in Belleville, ON. My practical experience stems from a lot of personal hard work, dedication and determination. After working as a publisher for four years, I founded a small independent publishing house, which I am currently growing. I also published a national natural health magazine for two years and worked as the News Editor for the Kingston Whig-Standard in Kingston, ON. I was a Health/Sports and Fitness Editor for a large online magazine and as well, I worked as a Features Editor for a large daily paper. I am also an experienced graphic designer, reporter, copy editor, proofreader and writer of everything from news and feature stories to fiction and non-fiction books as well as promotional and PR writing. As a professional freelancer, I use my experience and intuition to form distinctive, compelling, accurate and when need be, thought-provoking, material for my clients. I have never missed a deadline and usually finish projects with time to spare. As a photojournalist, I learned to see and capture the 'soul' of a piece. This is also true of my writing. I am currently working with three authors, one who has published 19 books, 5 through me, to edit and publish their new books.

The written word is truly a powerful and ominous entity unto itself. As a writer, I...
