Creating text that captivates, informs, entices.

Writing
As a former journalist, I write copy efficiently, effectively, and on deadline. I enjoy interviewing people and getting their stories written down to share with a wide audience.
Editing
After more than 25 years of editing text — books, magazines, newspapers, white papers, brochures, web copy — I have a well-trained eye for details, consistency, and how to make text flow for a reader. I know the rules — and when to break them.
Evaluation
I give you feedback on your website or a sample publication from your archives to show you ways you can improve your message.
Ghostwriting

You’re the hero of your story. And it’s a story that needs to be told. But sorting out the details, finding time to write it, and making sure it says what you want it to say are all eluding you. I help you identify your audience and clarify your message.
