Don’t waste your valuable time searching for the right words. It's my job to help you find them!



As a freelance editor and writer, I have experience in everything from fiction to finance to faith. Whether you merely have a concept or are looking for an experienced writer to help you finish out a piece, I have a professional background in both the creation of original content as well as taking your idea and fine-tuning it into your very own masterpiece.


Even the best writers need editors.  Whether it’s a first draft or the 100th, an experienced pro can make all the difference in getting your manuscript ready for print so you can get it in your devoted reader’s hands.


I have worked side-by-side with engineers, board members, CEO's, and even missionaries to help tell their stories, the history of their companies, or even the benefits of the products they produce.

In addition to the above, I also have professional experience with:

  • Substantive (developmental) editing
  • Manuscript feedback
  • Website and book marketing copy
  • Bible study conception and creation
  • Social media strategy and copy
  • Quiz creation
  • NGO (nonprofit) direct mail copywriting
  • Event and video script writing
  • Crowdfunding content creation

If Not Now, When?

You have the message. We have the words. Let’s get that piece finished!
