—Daniel Pouesi, well known US author from American Samoa.

Personal Biography

If you have written a story and are unsure of how good it is and whether it needs to be professionally edited, I can help. I am a former journalist, a former newspaper editor, a fiction writer – The Mercedes Variation is my novel – and also a book publisher. I will read your manuscript and edit a few pages to show where and how you can polish the presentation of your words and ideas. I will also comment on and suggest ways to improve your entire manuscript. Please contact me; I’m sure I can help you with your story.
