Overview

I am a writer and editor always looking for new projects. I specialize in working with those for whom writing is not a great strength (or not yet) and helping them create a polished, professional, coherent work. My preferred genre is fiction, but I have a degree in Psychology with a research component and years of medical experience for academic articles.
