I specialize in loving the written word in all shapes and sizes. I love creating and perfecting prose in all its forms and have experience in various areas of writing and editing. I also excel at creative writing, particularly prose such as short fiction or short creative nonfiction.

In my editing I work towards perfecting not only grammar and punctuation but providing contsructive, honest criticism that maintains the integrity and voice of the piece while improving it.
