Service Description

As the author of 24 published books (not including the many books I've ghostwritten), all published since 2007 the old-fashioned way, I am creative, accurate, and speedy.

My strengths include:
Writing -- Providing high-quality, well-researched articles with or without my byline.

Editing & Proofreading -- I work quickly and accurately; I can polish your work to a high shine. I'm a finalist for the ACFW's 2014 Editor of the Year.

Critiques -- I love critiquing the work of others because it gives me the opportunity to share the "why" when I make suggestions. Character development is my biggest strength in writing fiction.

Ghostwriting -- Need someone to take the bare bones of your great idea and add a heartbeat? Look no further.

Social Media -- I tripled my website traffic and podcast downloads with a social-media campaign I designed myself. I'm skilled for effectiveness on:
Twitter
Pinterest
Facebook
LinkedIn
