Overview

My love affair with words began at an early age when my older brother share his passion for storytelling with art and words with me by reading and exposing me to different types of books. Combined with my own undescribable imagination, my passion for all forms storytelling traveled through 12 years of public education, four years of college and two years of grad school, and two decades of a career as a reporter and editor in print journalism in Texas and Georgia.

In the past 11 years, I have worked as a proofreader, an editor, and ghostwriter with authors in a variety of genres, mainly contemporary fiction, Christian fiction, and nonfiction essays, as well as some inspiration, self-help books. I also have been the key copywriter on four websites - pushing products, and currently, am the marketing manager for five restaurants, a politician, and a retail gift store. I also have been a book reviewer for pay and for books.

My idea is to become a partner with you in bringing your voice alive through well-crafted pages. I treat each work as if it was my own while keeping in my mind and heart what it is you want to do with your work.

So, when you are ready, I am here, and I will "bring the coffee."
