I've been a wordsmith for most of my life. I have taught Writing Skills, written & edited business correspondence, a business procedures manual, poetry, plays, songs, eulogies, speeches, and devotionals through the years. In 2014, I kept finding errors in books I was reading on Kindle, so I decided to do something about it! The portfolio of books I have edited below is representative of the genres and authors I have worked with. References are available on my website.
