I can help you achieve excellent, error-free writing and create a polished document to impress a professor, committee, granting body, or journal editor.  As a teacher, I am dedicated to helping others learn. As an editor, I am knowledgeable and up-to-date; I can help you polish your writing and improve your craft overall. As a person, I am supportive, encouraging, and understanding.
  • "Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public."  -  Winston Churchill I understand, because I am a writer as well as an editor. Before you fling your book anywhere - the junk drawer, your dog, or especially the public - let's work together to ensure that it is the best it can possibly be.
  • I'm an innovative thinker with a practical nature and a passion for explaining complex ideas simply. This makes me a dedicated and creative instructional designer, curriculum writer, and plain language editor. As a bonus, I am a storyteller, fiction writer, and novel editor.
