"I would live all my life in nonchalance and insouciance, were it not for making a living, which is rather a nouciance."
- Ogden Nash, poet, writer, genius in inventing words and rhyming schemes

Board Member, Bay Area Independent Publishers Association – baipa.org
Copyediting – I have decades of experience editing book manuscripts as well as blogs, website text, magazine articles, p.r. material of all types. The book genres I specialize in are: business, novels, memoirs, spirituality, fantasy (zombies, vampires), academic topics, women’s issues, children’s books.
I work with indie authors in the U.S. and other countries, as well as with author referrals from traditional publishers. It is exceptionally important to me to ensure that the author’s authentic voice is never deleted, diluted, or changed. I truly care that my clients’ words are well-written, interesting, succinct and memorable. I am also an eagle-eyed proofreader.
Copywriting – I write p.r. and marketing copy for projects such as: back jacket copy for books, website copy (write from scratch, or enliven existing text), blog posts, bios, magazine profiles and feature stories, email blasts, brochures.
Other skills – Research, interviewing.
