I help you with the words that inform, educate, entertain, and convey your interests to your public, your customers and your community.

If you have a story to tell, I help you create engaging experiences for audiences through the written word.

Having worked for over 75 clients via an international online platform, I've also completed over 500 writing, editing and proofreading jobs for local and international clients by private referral since 2007.

I am a professional editor, response copywriter, and proofreader.

This is my calling, my craft. Through insight, savvy, and a strong work ethic along with a proactive approach, an excellent understanding of English as it is spoken in various parts of the world, and an active knowledge of several English (US and UK) style guides, you are guaranteed in-depth research, originality without plagiarism, and my utmost devotion to developing your or your company's best voice.

I enjoy editing -- substantive and developmental editing of creative non-fiction books and biographies; web pages including sales pages; polishing email copy; educational and technical articles, guides, and manuals.

I love writing -- in addition to producing web content, email series, educational and technical articles, media releases for innovative products and services, brochures, flyers, and white papers, I contribute this expertise to editing projects as needed.

I work with top executives, entrepreneurs, and authors of creative non-fiction.

I'm a wordsmith who listens, researches, edits and writes like a mediator -- between the reader and the author, the intended audience and the message originator. I like to make suggestions that support the best, agreed outcome for a written work.

As a child, my nose was often in a book. Reading everything from Shakespeare to biographies about people living extraordinary lives, I was winning book prizes for writing at a young age.

Educated in Journalism, Communications and PR, my editing and writing skills were honed through sub-editing, writing corporate marketing materials, writing and editing plays, organizing international communications exhibitions in London, editing books of poetry, crafting business and sales letters, editing academic work, and numerous other B2B/B2C (human to human) projects.

I look forward to partnering with you to publish your message and to grow your business.
