Need to hire a freelance writer or editor?

We provide writing and editing services the tried-and-true way: "eyes on the page" and close attention to the principles of plain English.


As your professional freelance writer and editor, we take the time to get to know your project needs and goals and communicate with you at every step in the process.


An editor should never impose his or her style onto you or your writing. We'll listen to you and help you engage your readers, create clear and cohesive text, and present your work in its best form.


An investment in yourself is always money well spent. Make that important investment in your knowledge and skill base by contacting us today for teaching/coaching rates.

From simple document assessment and proofreading to substantive editing and rewriting, let us help you create the writing project you envision and require.

Your Professional WordSmith

I began my professional freelance writing and editing career in 2009, after a successful career as a teacher and bookstore owner. Since that time, I’ve won multiple writing awards, established long-standing client relationships, and helped numerous authors ready their manuscripts for traditional and self-publishing. I specialize in combining editing with coaching services that enhance a writer’s skill level.
