In addition to my work as an author, I often work as a freelance writer and editor. I will work closely with clients to execute their exact vision, but I am an independent worker who does not require micromanagement to complete projects. I’ve never missed a deadline, and I have many references attesting to the quality of my work.

For more information on my experience in nonfiction writing and editing, view my resume on my LinkedIn profile. I have over 20 years writing and editing experience (as well as some design skills), the scope of which contains, but isn’t limited to, the following:

  • editing
    • corporate, marketing, and technical materials
    • fiction (short stories, novellas, novels)
      • developmental edits—working with authors to hone the scope of their project, find major holes in plots, crafting believable characters, and enriching settings
      • copy edits—working with authors to establish cohesive flow and tighten weak spots
      • line edits—working with authors to clean up word choice, correct grammatical and typographical errors, and maintain consistent structure
  • writing and design of newsletters, brochures, ads, direct mailings, and annual publications
  • composing and distributing news releases and media kits
  • researching and drafting grant proposals
  • crafting technical user and training manuals (including line art graphics)
  • writing web content and designing web layout (preferred method is with WordPress or Wix platforms, but can work in HTML)
  • designing book covers (IDIM Design) and marketing materials

Some of my work includes people or companies in the following areas:

  • healthcare
  • academia
  • engineering firms
  • power industry
  • consulting firms
  • publishing houses
  • individual authors (One of my clients is a USA Today bestseller and consistently ranks alongside and even above Stephen King on Amazon.)

I am happy to work with authors in any genre and companies in any industry. If you’re interested in discussing a writing or an editing project, please contact me by clicking here.
