I'm enjoying my Encore Career as a developmental editor/ghostwriter. Over the past four years I have completed several manuscripts for self-publishing and have excellent references from my satisfied authors. I'm excited to explore new and engaging projects through the Reedsy foundry and help new authors bring their efforts to fruition. My strengths are in historical fiction, non-fiction novels, memoirs, and self-help books.
In the years since my Executive/Corporate Legal Secretary career (ending in 2003), I kept busy as a freelance virtual assistant assisting various entrepreneurs with the day-to-day tasks of running online businesses. (Please see my extensive work histories at When I discovered the concept of Encore Careers, I began garnering experience as a developmental editor by building websites for some of those entrepreneurs and picking up overflow from editor friends. I joined Editorial Freelancers Association in 2012 and landed a project within 30 days. I've been working steadily as an editor/ghostwriter ever since, sometimes by word of mouth referrals. Several other authors have tabled our projects, but I hope they will follow through some day. I am currently working on a "non-fiction novel" with a 74-year old ex-con bank robber. Exciting times!
