My goal is to help you make your words mean what you say, and say what you mean. I offer development editing as well as coaching for writers. If you are ready to publish your work, I offer design and publishing services.

My services are perfect for you if you are writing a
- non-fiction book

My special interest fields include education, spirituality, finance, and technology. I offer a free evaluation before the start of any project. Levels of support include review and recommend, on-line edits, word crafting and re-ordering of concepts, collaborative ghost writing, and coaching. As a developmental editor, I work with you to create structure and clarity for your project. I also am interested in working as a mentor to young people who are beginning their own works.

I also offer publishing services, creating quality print-on-demand books.
