Words—written or spoken—are still the most powerful means of communication that we have. Images, animation, colors, music, and sound have the ability to capture attention and engage on an emotional level, but when you need to persuade, to instruct, to edify, to exhort, to argue, you need words.

Words are my specialty. I have more than 27 years of experience writing and editing, and I’m ready to go to work for you. You can see some examples of my work here, and my resumé here.

Give me a call or drop me a line to talk about your project.


Technical writing:

  • Manuals and online help
  • White papers
  • Case studies

General writing:

  • Magazine or newsletter articles
  • Weblogs


Substantive edits:

  • Reviewing your text from your audience’s point of view
  • Suggesting reorganization or rewording for clarity, conciseness, consistency, and usability


  • Reviewing your text for errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation
  • Checking facts, cross-references and other verifiable details
  • Verifying conformance to a particular style
