Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $20

Whatever your writing, editing, or proofreading needs are, I can meet them. I have twenty years experience putting sentences together to promote, describe, sell, engage, and/or explain anything from a television movie concept to a self-help guide to a non-profit brochure. If it involves words, I'm an expert. I've satisfied past employers with smart, lively work delivered in a timely manner, and will continue to do so for future clients. Would love to count you among them.

Service Description

WORK HISTORY

2010 - present: Proofreader - Siman Media Works, New York. Proofread all materials for the publisher, including brochures, catalogues, and books. Also, proofread the non-fiction novel, Bull Canyon, by Lin Pardey.

2009-present: Los Angeles Motherhood Examiner at Examiner.com.
Motherhood is complex. So is writing about it. Sometimes I write about other things that interest me as a person and sometimes they have nothing to do with Los Angeles OR being a parent. I'm funny that way.

2009-present: Sole proprietor, blogger, creator, personality, editor and writer at DailyCupofJo.com. Coffee fuels my day and just about everything I do and say. Why keep it to myself?

2004-2009: Wrote teleplay "Home of the Brave", a pilot spec for NBC. Wrote 2-hour teleplays "For My Son" and "Who Killed Rebecca?". Continued mothering three children, which qualifies me for everything and nothing.

2001-2004: Development, Showtime Network. Critiqued scripts so executives didn't have to. Mastered multi-tasking at home reading screenplays and writing coverage while reading "Miss Spider's Tea Party" to my children and growing broccoli out of my elbow. Pictures available upon request.

2000-2001: Ghostwriter (shh...don't tell) for The Blair Witch Files, #1: The Witch's Daughter and #5, The Death Card, published by Random House via Parachute Publishing.

1999: Ghostwriter (again, quiet) for 25-page proposal of ABC mini-series "Night Terrors" for R.L. Stine. Based on...
