I am a seasoned veteran of publishing. From writing to editing to design and prepress production, I've had my hand in every aspect of the business. In fact, that's just the way I had intended when I started out: I wanted to be knowledgeable in all aspects of the publishing process. Ten years later, I make those talents available to you here on oDesk to assist you in developing, editing, or publishing your work.
In addition to helping other authors or would-be authors, I've written and published four books. One of my fiction titles recently won a prize from a well-established book awards. I've helped authors add content to their manuscripts, and I've been contracted to ghostwrite a few full-length book projects.
Among the assignments I find the most pleasurable are ones that require a great deal of research and thought--ones that take great deal of time and energy to produce. I love to dive into a project, and I'm often amazed at just how deep I can go. Because I began my career in scholarly publishing, I tend to take a research-based approach to creating content and while working in developmental editing roles. If you think you're project is too long and tedious for anyone to take on, think again! Character development for novels, research necessary to create a plot or write a nonfiction title, one-on-one developmental editing and manuscript coaching: those are my strong suits.
I've also studied four different languages (Spanish, German, Ancient Greek, and Arabic), so any projects that deal with aspects of any of the cultures in which these languages are (were) spoken are of particular fascination to me. I also enjoy history, politics, psychology, and sociology.
I hope you will consider me for your next project. I'd love to see what I can do to help you out. You will not be disappointed!
