I collaborate with individuals in getting writing projects—such as personal stories and memoirs, academic papers and books, and guides based on experience and research—into the light of day. My work involves projects at the start as well as projects in progress, including materials that have been “accumulating dust” for any number of reasons.

I provide consulting and guidance as well as do writing, editing, and/or layout to help ensure that clients put their “best foot” forward as they get their work out there. In addition, I work with self-publishers throughout the prepublication process, which often ends with delivering files to a traditional printer or uploading them for print or e-book distribution.


Client Projects

Among the kinds of services I have provided to help move projects forward are:

 Writing/editing nonfiction books and fictionalized family histories

 Reviewing and editing articles, book chapters, and reports according to specified stylesheets

 Creating programs and booklets for annual events/anniversary celebrations

 Producing brochures, background sheets, and guides for individuals and small business owners

 Writing and editing text for blogs and websites

 Developing book layout, including graphics, indexing, and cover design for print and online publication

 Editing theses and dissertations according to specified guidelines and institutional requirements


My Commitment

As noted in the general description of the services, my commitment is 100%. Whether just beginning or nearing completion of a project, I provide writing, editing, and layout services that help move work through to completion.



Thank you for visiting this website. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. I wish you all the best in pursuing your dreams and look forward to hearing from you to discuss how I might help!

Providing Support at All Stages

I provide management services for projects throughout development, including tracking and maintaining organization, coordinating timelines and deadlines, and offering guidance and feedback.

Preparing for Print or Upload

I coordinate design and layout services for print and online publication with ongoing project development and review for effective and efficient completion of all phases of the work.

Ensuring Quality

Whether a project needs research and development, writing, or editing, I offer perspective, expertise, and attention to detail that help ensure that work is at its best on release.
