Service Description

Experienced writer and editor; 30+ years of experience in all areas of commercial and fiction writing and used to getting results, getting read, and pleasing my clients.

I'm very particular and it has to please me before it can please you!

Grammar, spelling, and punctuation are my three particular demons--they always have to be right without question. Beyond that, nothing is more pleasing to a client than a well-written piece that engages the mind and imagination and that's my goal with every word I write.

If I can give you better than you expected sooner than you thought possible, then I've achieved my goal.

My aim is always to please my client and I will go to great lengths to do that. Though you may have many customers, I have only one client at a time, and that's you!

Whether it's SEO-laden web copy, articles, bios, books, print ads, grants, squeeze pages, autoresponders, or sales letters, I can fulfill your every need in a short, hassle-free time frame.

I have only one goal: to satisfy you. I am very serious when I say that "Satisfaction is Guaranteed. Period."

- Business to Consumer (B2C)
- Business to Business (B2B)
