Service Description

I offer a variety of editing and writing services. I can ghostwrite your book, write articles on any topic you need. I can offer editing at any level, from substantive line editing to copyediting for tone, usage, and style to proofreading for punctuation and spelling. I have experience in academic, journalistic, technical, business, and informal writing styles.

I have over 6 years experience in editing all of the editorial content for an engineering trade magazine, as well as over 15 years experience in writing, revising, and editing technical documents. My 10 years as a project manager means that I will not only be able to meet your needs, I will meet your deadlines.

I have edited over 200 articles and 5 books. I have also revised countless corporate documents. My career experience includes involvment in the banking, telecommunication, IT, engineering, geology, non-profit, and federal grant management fields, as well as training and certification in medical terminology.

More importantly, my lifelong love of reading has provided me with an excellent command of English grammar, punctuation and spelling; a strong vocabulary; a sense of what flows and what doesn't; a broad knowledge base for a variety of topics; and an absolute fasciantion for words and all that they can do.

I am proficient with the Microsoft Office suite of applications - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access and Project - as well as the Chicago Manual of Style.
