"The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug".... Mark Twain (That's me with Mark Twain in Jackson Hole, WY)


I am an experienced professional writer/editor/critic committed to making sure my clients portray their absolute best selves in all written content, be it a 250-page novel or a 3-page student essay. I've been writing for as long as I can remember and have been dubbed the "semi-colon queen" by one of my clients because of my nearly obsessive attention to detail.

Seriously though, if you want to turn in the perfect school paper or university application (ESL not a problem), get your novel or screenplay noticed by publishers or producers, move your business to a new level (including SEO online presence), write a memoir about your life for future generations or engage in any other literary endeavor, I'm your girl.

I'm reasonable (not to be confused with cheap) and easy to work with. Below are reviews from a few clients.
