Let an Experienced Writer/Editor Improve Your Communication! 

Look around the Internet and you'll see how the English language has been mangled, often beyond recognition. It doesn't have to be that way.

There is nothing better than being able to communicate clearly, concisely and accurately. When everything comes together, it's more than just writing, editing or blogging.

It's storytelling.

I consider myself, above all else, a storyteller, one who can improve you communication in a multitude of ways -- 20 types of writing and 13 types of editing, to be exact.

A writer is your web site’s best friend. A writer finds the right words to craft the message you want to send your customers, existing and potential. It doesn’t matter what the product or the industry. Good writing will get you noticed, and a writer who can deliver SEO copy that puts you higher on Google and other search engines is invaluable. I have been writing since I was 11 years old, and I can give your Web site the writer’s touch! My words have placed people on Google page one. Just provide me the keywords and my writing will do the rest.  

If you have an existing site, take advantage of my editing skills. A good editor cleans up the copy while maintaining the voice, tone and style you already have on your Web site. I have been editing for more than 25 years. My editing skills guarantee your web site will accurately tell your story and deliver your intended message. I’ll get rid of all the unnecessary verbiage and leave you with clear, concise copy that sings. And remember, the fewer the words, the less the cost! An editor also is invaluable for all clients.

My background in journalism has given me the necessary tools to write something as small as your 30-second commercial/elevator speech, your 250-page book and just about everything in between. That includes corporate communications and speeches of any length. Also, I'm skilled at web pages and various types of marketing materials (product labels, direct mail letters, press releases, brochures). Finally, I also write the unusual: online dating profiles.
