Overview

With a dozen or more years in office administration under my belt, I was looking to make a change Then a phone call from a friend forever changed my life. Toni woked as a reporter for the local newspaper, and she knew that my educational background was in communications, or more specifically, journalism. As luck would have it, there was an opening in the Editorial Department. A few days after my interview, I was offered a choice of not one, but two, jobs at the newspaper. One in Editorial, the other in Advertising. As a single mother, I...

Service Description

I have been a writer for as long as I can remember. You can say it's my education. You can say it's my background and experience. I know it goes much deeper that. It's a gift passed down from a grandmother I never knew. It's just something I've always been able to do.

While earning a bachelor's degree in communications from Belmont University in Nashville, TN, I honed the skills needed for adademic writings, articles, press releases, reports, and resumes and cover letters.

After graduation, a six year venture into the publishing world offered invaluable experience that I would not have been able to get elsewhere. Working with songwriters and their lyrics on a daily basis sharpened my gift for writing in rhyme and meter. Now I have branched out into writing children's stories and poems in metered verse.

Life has presented me with a variety of opportunities to utilize my gift for writing, and I now claim a very diversified range of experience in everything from children's writing in metered rhyme and verse to grant writing for a non profit organization to legal writing in appellate court briefs.

It's your project. You're the boss. I'll meet your specifications and your deadline. On time every time.
