Empowering Edits, Storytelling
I use my storytelling skills to assist authors, publishers, and other clients with achieving communication goals. I am an experienced editor with a special interest in fostering all things healthy living, bolstered by decades of writing about everything from conservation, to life science breakthroughs, to sustainable landscape approaches.
As a certified editor, my approach is tailored to a manuscript's needs and to client preferences. Service options include:
Developmental editing to clarify or reorganize content
Copy editing for grammar, spelling, word choice, style consistency, etc.
Proofreading of final content for grammar, formatting consistency, etc.

I am an award-winning writer with decades of experience who can develop features, white papers, and more. Besides covering conservation topics, recent projects include conference reports on diversity issues, medical education web modules, and features on computer modeling. I have also covered health and lifestyle topics and provided How To articles on sustainability approaches for consumer publications. In addition, I ghostwrite book proposals and other content.

Are you unsure if you've created a clear picture for readers, or seek guidance on how to flesh out scenes and develop an outline? I can provide a basic manuscript critique or an in-depth version that includes text-specific comments. I also offer book proposal editing or advice, and one-on-one phone or video coaching to address specific writing approaches and tools.
My coaching is informed by the editing I provide to businesses and self-published authors, and by coaching hundreds of university faculty for more than a decade about engaging ways to present their work in print and on the web.
