Overview

Experienced, resourceful and inventive writing by an aficionado of the art; someone guaranteed to obsess over every word, turn of phrase, and wayward comma. Editing and proofreading by a technician studied in both the Chicago and Oxford styles with attention to nuances of voice and format. Services provided for a wide range of publications, from articles and blogs to fiction and technical writing. For those ready to inject their publication with a greater maturity of craft, I would like to help.

The principle art of commercial writing lies in the relationship between author and reader and a writer, or editor, must understand that relationship to choose and craft his style, voice, and content in order to achieve the principle aim of all writing art: expression. By understanding art we near the understanding of ourselves and then of others, which allows the congress of thoughts. I assume that is where you, who seek writing services, are headed: towards sharing a message. If by my art I can help, I should very well like to.

-Writing services for a wide range of publications. I can write research papers and I can write romance novels and I can write anything you might find in-between. I am especially practiced in fiction, both short and novel forms, including experience with the entire process of writing to the end: from creative inception to a final manuscript. I have an imitative facility to mimic almost any voice or style required from Victorian to minimalist.
