Letters. Words. Sentences. Paragraphs. Reading. Writing.
These nouns and two gerund forms of verbs represent my life’s work, play, and passion. I've been a freelance editor and writer since 2009.
My goal as your editor is to uphold your voice on the page and get you to see your manuscript in its best light.
I offer developmental editing, line and content editing, and, proofreading in all genres.
A third-generation Arizonan, I collaborated in 2012 with another native of this state, artist Kathryn Henneman, to create a chapbook in honor of Arizona's centennial. The print run was 3,500 copies, of which 12 remain. The chapbook's printing was sponsored by State Farm Insurance.
