Overview

I can write or edit just about anything (and also do voice-overs), including articles, business case studies, e-books and product descriptions, creating them from scratch or bringing your copy to its full potential. More than thirty years of experience as a business reporter for an East Coast newspaper and author of three books on environmental topics, including one, Unseen Danger, reviewed in the Sunday New York Times Book Review. I'm well-read and sophisticated and eager to tackle your assignment.
