Service Description

Meticulous editing and proofreading of any type of writing and any length. My specialty is American historical content, popular culture, music, television, and social and political movements.

Quality and precision are my top priorities. I stay in touch with my clients and am always available by email 24 hours a day. You can be assured that I will promptly reply to any of your inquiries and never leave you in the lurch. Put your trust in my abilities and you will be satisfied.

I can do voice-overs ranging from a few minutes to narrating your entire book. I have a clear, pleasing voice available in a variety of accents, including basic American, Irish, British, and Southern. I am willing to develop others.

What Jean Seberg's sister said about my 2008 article:
“I felt you had done an admirable job of presenting her to your readers…It warms my heart to know that there are people in your generation who will continue to honor and memorialize Jean. I feel that your work is impeccable.” — Mary Ann (Seberg) Shuey

Political Humor instructor comments:
"This was a genuine delight to read. You make connections between the speeches and a wide array of assigned readings with precision, demonstrating impressive command of every idea you cite. The whole essay maintains a very high level, but the stuff on Turbo--particularly the use of Bergson and Rourke/Scherman and Paulding in that section—is outstanding."
