Service Description

>The world is full of words. Choosing the right words requires skill and obsession.

I've been writing and editing for more than 40 years and worked as the health and nutrition columnist then managing editor for the now defunct Status Magazine Nashville. My instincts for what makes good writing have been honed by many years of creative journalism, research, and personal experiences.

As an author, I'm sensitive to the writer's expression and you won't find a more thorough eye for detail, structure, and consistency, making sure your project is clear and cohesive from the start, that it maintains theme, plot and character consistency, or that the opening to your book presents a tangible thesis to be expanded throughout the content. I can illuminate what you've written and make it more engaging.

I've authored 2 novels and ghostwritten several ebooks, maintain a site on becoming a better writer, and am a Judge for the Global Ebook Awards and the Eric Hoffer Small Press Awards.

I hold a B.A.S. in Fashion Design and Merchandising from the International Academy of Design and Technology-Nashville.

2x Juice Award winner for Fresh Design and Outstanding Use of Creative Perspective by IADT.

HubNuggets Award for best new writer by HubPages.

I began fine art training at age 11 and have worked in many mediums including pastel, oil, watercolor, and acrylic painting, clay, plaster of Paris, textiles, wood, natural fibers, and various metals.

Professionally trained in...
