What I Do

Writing

It's as simple as taking thoughts, actions, and goals and putting them into words! Wait, maybe that's not really all that simple. Fortunately, I'm here to do all of the pencil tapping, finger twiddling, screen staring, and keyboard smashing for you. Whether you're working on website content, an online article, grant application, technical document, marketing campaign, or creative project, I'm here to help.

Editing

So you've gotten your thoughts in order and have them more or less aligned into words. What's next? Are your commas and periods in the right places? Is your message coming across as you intended it? Will your readers be engaged? Let me help you think through your message, including tone, pacing, voice, structure, and more. Send me your copy or manuscript and I'll work with you to make it both effective and engaging.

Marketing

Let's put this writing and editing together with creative thinking. It doesn't matter whether you're a small business, nonprofit agency, or individual artist; I'll craft your marketing copy so that you get the most bang for your buck. If you want to do it yourself, I'll coach you. Social media, blog posts, advertisements, newsletters, proposals—you name it, and I'll help you utilize it to the best advantage.

  • If you know nothing else about Svetlana Chmakova’s Awkward, know this: it needs to be on the shelves of every school and public library. That may sound bombastic, but Awkward deserves the high praise. It’s one of the best reads I’ve had—comic or otherwise—in years. Middle schooler Penelope (Peppi) Torres is new in town. That’s […]

  • Dream Fossil is a trip. The collected stories of Satoshi Kon have little in common other than their creator and the fact that they’re all snippets and facets, daydreams of life. As he honed his artistic and storytelling craft, Kon’s topics ranged from baseball to robots to historical Japan. Are they all amazing? Nope. To […]

  • Swords of Sorrow continues! The latest installment of this massive crossover event features classic pulp characters Dejah Thoris and Irene Adler. In London in 1894, a lion-like monster has eaten members of Parliament, and notoriously competent and discrete Irene Adler is put on the case by the elder Mr. Holmes (not to be confused with his […]
