Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.
— Mark Twain

The trick is knowing which ones are the wrong words!

Clients come to me when they have something to say but either find it difficult or have little time to formulate their thoughts into words. That's what I do. I listen attentively to who you are, how you speak and what you have to share with the world, and then put it in writing for you (or edit what you've already written).

I write. I edit. I tell your story.

I have edited novels into publication-ready material, proofread and improved 40-page documents to make them board meeting-worthy, written copy for brochures that got the client work, ghostwritten marketing articles that funneled customers to the client's website, crafted bios that accurately reflected the individual's or organization's unique personality, and created social media copy that got the post liked, the tweet favorited, and the blog shared.

If you don't see what you need here, please contact me! I'm more than happy to listen to you, discuss your needs, and find a solution.

HANDY-DANDY GRAMMAR CHEAT SHEETS

I'm blessed with a thirst for knowledge, but cursed with a poor memory. Thus, I write things down, I keep lists, I consult dictionaries constantly.

It was my friend Dan's remark "I think you're interesting and funny, and except for lay/lie, you have a great way with words" that inspired me to create these handy-dandy infographics so that I no longer had to look it up —everything I needed to know was all there in one place. One pleasing-to-the-eye place. Well...not everything. Some things. A few things. Damn! There are so many more goofy rules and unexplainable exceptions....
