Overview

I am a published poet/writer and editor with 30+ years' experience in copy editing. I've edited everything from Top Secret reports for the U.S. Department of State Office of Inspector General, to nursing certification exams for the American Nurses Association; from a coffee table book on natural beauty secrets, to a speech on world peace for the General Assembly of the United Nations. The most recent book manuscripts I've edited are an innovative guide to chronic pain management, and a biography of the late Congressman and Latino activist, Dennis Chavez.
