I'm a Psychology major so I analyze everything including writing and books. I'm a 4 year public health super hero in my day life (Alisa Howard) and writer, author and editor by night (An Howard).... and yes I change in a phone booth in case you were wondering!
I've been an editor all my life really, always correcting words, grammar and punctuation that I see written. So I turned what came naturally to me into a freelance business 5 years ago. My professional writing experience includes: Being a Paralegal for 3 years, which we all know does most of the writing for the lawyer and we are their in-house editors as well. It's our job to catch their mistakes before documents are sent out. I've also been a Policy & Procedure Writer for 2 years at the State of Nevada Office of Public Health, Informatics and Epidemiology department. Most recently for the last 2 years I've been a Director of an new health program at a local non-profit where I've written all of my grants, policies and procedures, business letters and correspondence. In between all of this (if you can believe I had time) I've maintained my own blog, and have been a contributing writer and editor for BOSS Magazine out of Atlanta for 4 years.
In case you need more on my editing skills (lol), in my own business I've edited over 15 first-time authors books. I also do book consulting and marketing with them to ensure they understand the intricate details involved with putting their book on the market. I've recently expanded my company to include contracting with typesetters and graphic designers to help get my client's book ready for self publishing.
