The Story Doctor - Creative Development Editor
   United States
  |   Orlando, FL

Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $22

I am a creative writer and editor who specializes in story development and dialogue. I can take a story that is lacking that ephemeral "something" and bring it to life by giving your characters charisma, plugging up your plot holes and making your dialogue more dynamic.

Humor is my forte, but I can produce serious work as well. In fact, a mixture of the two is what I do best – keeping the readers off-balance so they are compelled to turn the page to laugh or cry.

I have a B.A. in English, with a minor in Writing from the Hamilton Holt...

Service Description

I am particularly skilled in dialogue. I’ve written a couple of screen plays, both produced at Valencia Community College. I’ve also written two plays which I produced and directed at the Orlando Fringe Festival. “Overpass” was done in 1999, and “Sacrifices at the Altar of the Virgin Tourist” was in 2001. While working at Universal Studios, I was given the opportunity to write for 2003 Halloween Horror Nights.

My most recent success has been becoming part of a writing team called Dangereye. We are putting together an anthology of sci-fi stories that will first be published online. My story, “Cooter” has been released as the flagship story and is available on Smashwords.com. Along with my writing duties, I am also working on the team as a development editor. I enjoy helping other writers maximize their talents and get the best out of their stories as much as I enjoy writing my own.

In my current full time position as an executive assistant, I am often asked to write brochures, manuals and workbooks. Though not as fun as fiction, this work is still rewarding as I am translating “business speak” into normal, easy to read English.
