Overview

I love to write. As a published author, I'm used to deadolines and writing requirements, and approach each job with a fresh viewpoint and energy. I have experience writing both creative fiction and non-fiction. My writing experience varies from factual presentation of health, fitness, tax information, decorating helps and lesson plans for both educational settings and Christian material. Fictional work runs the gammet from an adult Christian thriller (novel) to children's poetry, short stories and music. I've also completed a young adult...

Service Description

I have been working as a freelance writer on a part-time basis for the last 20 years. Now that my children are grown and one hand is not needed to wipe noses and ... whatever else, I've decided to pursue what I believe is my calling -- writing!

I love writing for children, and have written everything from short stories to a young adult novel, from poetry to music. I also write for adults, both fiction and non-fiction, and love to step out of my 'comfort zone' and try new things. I've won awards for several pieces of poetry and a horror short story, and have published many more. I've done ghostwriting for several clients. These works range from picture books to a children's early chapter series.

Although I write alone, I have a wonderful group of fellow-writers. We assist each other in research, and have taught our small group the ins-and-outs of near-perfect editing and proofreading.
