Learn About Your Personal Copy Editor, Copywriter, and Ghostwriter
Credentials Are Important

An editor with a wide range of living experiences, in addition to writing and editing expertise,
can more effectively advise you and understand your writing needs.

My Mission:  

To provide each valued client with a timely and cost-effective finished product that is second to none and far better than it has to beóone that will assure me of repeat business.

  I'm a freelance copy writer, copy editor, proofreader, and ghostwriter, primarily serving businesses and authors, but I enjoy helping writers at any level of need (people like you). I have twenty-plus years of experience. I am currently the copy editor for two magazines, one online "magazine," several small businesses in both the United States and some foreign countries, and have many repeat clients (attorneys, scientists, small business owners/managers, authors of both fiction and nonfiction, etc.)

  I'm a published novelist and ghostwriter of books and articles.  I know about the importance of an effective query letter, a dazzling synopsis, proper format, hooks, and nearly-perfect grammar, punctuation, and spelling. I know the ins and outs of the current publishing world: trade publication, e-books, and self-publication through POD businesses and e-book services for Kindle, Nook and Kobo publication..  

  I'm a certified paralegal.  I know about corporate law, civil litigation, real estate law, legal research, wills, probate, family law, and demonstrative evidence. I can effectively turn "legalese" into easily understood English.

  I'm a former teacher of English and speech.  I have a solid background in the rules of grammar, proper punctuation and formal writing. I don't "guess" or go by "sounds better." I go by the rule book of your choice, including the Chicago Manual of Style, MLA Handbook, AP Stylebook, etc..

  I'm a former executive assistant to the officers of a medical information corporation in the Silicon Valley (purchased in a merger).  I performed extensive writing, rewriting and copyediting of every type of business document, including software manuals, employee manuals, brochures, websites, business plans, and business correspondence. I know the needs of small businesses or large corporations and what works best and why.

  I'm a former executive assistant/office manager to the officers of a start-up high-tech corporation in the Silicon Valley (purchased by AT&T).  I set up and wrote the documents for twenty-eight file systems, including all human resources, Board of Directors, investor, and employee files. I know how a business is run and how the "players" interact with each other.

  I'm a former small business owner and rental property owner.  I understand wholesale and retail sales, contracts, effective advertising and company documents, employee and client relationships . . . the nitty-gritty of what makes a company great. I can effectively write or edit your company's documents. Or . . . write effective articles or advertising schemes and improve the quality of the text on your website pages.

  I'm a goal-setter.  I continuously set new goals and work hard to achieve them 

  I'm an activist. I enjoy new challenges (like learning why the use of social media tools is now necessary for businesses and authors, and why they must establish an active presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest)..   

   I'm a consummate professional.  I don't take anyone or any project lightly or for granted.  I give nothing but my best.

  I'm a quality writer and copy editor.  I can help you achieve a more satisfying personal success, by carefully and expertly copyediting your written work, so . . .

Letís build a partnership for success.

Please contact me via my email address. Since every writer has different levels of writing skills and each project is unique and ranges from short to long, easy to difficult/technical, and may involve some to extensive research, I can't provide even an estimate of editing or ghostwriting fees unless I see a "sample." Thanks for understanding.
