Service Description

“Marley has been exceptional. She has been a delight to work with, especially because she is so clear and exacting, outlining the work prior commencement - this help avoid many possible headaches that may have cropped up otherwise. She definitely someone who would gladly have in my corner for other work. Thank you again Marley, Mike”

Because life doesn't always happen between 9 and 5, and this global economy means we're not all on the same time, I will work around your schedule. We will discuss the project fully with a full understanding of time deadlines, expectations, and milestones before we roll our sleeves up and get to work together.

I have worked in the health care industry, higher education, computer technology, home building, financial industry, government, Congress, dot.com/start ups, independent contractor, direct mail, advertising, event planning. I have done article spinning, book editing, ghost writing, web articles, resumes, cover letters, autobiographies, and many other projects.

In writing, my strengths are character development, deepening emotions, plotting, making a coherent synopsis, and a vast knowledge of the publishing industry as a twelve year insider. Also, in working with clients on their books, I take great pride in getting to know them, the message they want to put out there, listening to their voice and vision for the book, and then translating that onto the page to get their story told.
