Overview

Everyone has a favorite story.

Most of the time, their favorite story is their own!

For the last 30+ years, I have been providing editing and proofreading services to various businesses, non-profits, and authors. I am a word-smith. I love the written word and the flow of thoughts and images that can be shared ... words that can make me laugh, bring me to tears, or that can make me think and learn. I also love and thoroughly enjoy helping to make other's words and ideas come alive clearly and with purpose.

I am as comfortable editing electronically as I am going old-school with paper and my trusty green pen. I am thorough and accurate, creative when needed, and do my best work nights when the moon is high and my tea cup is steaming.

A lot of my background is with business writing and documents, but I most enjoy editing and proofing fiction -- mainly paranormal, shifter, MC, and erotica in whatever form(s) they take. I've had the privilege of working on books in these genres that are pending publication within the next couple of months (11/20). I prefer to take on the personae of 'partner' in a project -- not that of a slave driver or nitpickin' "editor." I'm there to help you make your work shine -- it's what makes me smile.
