About Me & Contact Information
I've been an editor, writer, instructional designer, and ghostwriter for 30 years. I continue to search for ways to bring more contentment to my own work, just as I help my clients find contentment in theirs. I bring experience from major publishers, development houses, pension systems, academia, major industry, government agencies, and from helping many author clients.
I've nurtured and helped first-time authors become award-winners; at least eight are Amazon bestselling authors. I have edited for well-established authors, including a colonel, a kanban guru, a pediatric cardiologist, and a Hollywood screenwriter—Jeremy Leven (The Notebook, The Legend of Bagger Vance, Don Juan DeMarco).
Formats and genres I've worked on include print and eBooks, fiction and nonfiction works, journals and memoirs, textbooks and assessments (ELA, STEM, and Social Studies), online educational materials, dissertations, and white papers. You can be confident that I will keep your work private and provide a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) to ensure that your work will not be shared with anyone else—until you're ready to share it.
I have extensive experience in the fields of education, national security, social sciences, business, and financial services. I can format your manuscript to whatever specific style you need: American Psychological Association (APA), Associated Press (AP), Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS), or Modern Language Association (MLA). I'm a long-time member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and LinkedIn; these sites provide additional information about my education and professional experience.
If you have questions, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll respond quickly. If you would like a project quote, please read the Submission Guidelines section. Thank you!
