Service Description

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticultural Science but interestingly graduated with intense concentrations in Folklore, Technical Writing and Journalism.

I have published eleven novels and have written white papers for the United States Department of Agriculture, North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. I have also written a wide variety of web content ranging from how-to instructions for knitting, gardening articles, articles on bankruptcy and articles on electrical construction. My background is wide and I love a challenge!

My work as a novelist required that I meet very tight deadlines with a polished product. I have carried this ethic over into my work in non-fiction.
