If you're here to learn more about me and what I offer, this page is where to start.
I'm a professional freelance editor and writer, and I work primarily in the Christian market. Because of my more than thirty years of publishing experience and more than ten years as a freelancer, I know my clients need what they need, when they need it. They don't want delays, hassle, or poor quality; they want on-time, on-target, thorough, top-notch assistance. And I have a reputation for quick turnarounds, most often beating deadlines, whether working with fiction or nonfiction.

Thanks for stopping by. (Picture me drinking coffee. I probably am!)
To get the right word in the right place is a rare achievement. To condense the diffused light of a page of thought into the luminous flash of a single sentence, is worthy to rank as a prize composition just by itself . . . Anybody can have ideas--the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph. ― Mark Twain
