    I love to dig into research and ghostwriting projects, be they articles, e-books or lengthier printed works. My passion is writing for the helping professions, for which I have written educational pieces, promotional copy and donor communications. Most of my commercial writing has consisted of technical and training materials for in-house and end user use in the wholesale and safety industries. I started writing stories in grade school, and still keep a couple YA projects going. When we work together, I’ll ask lots of questions to understand what you want and check in to be sure I’m on track. Logical organization of your ideas and checking all the angles is my specialty. I will work hard to capture what’s important and express it in clear and professional language. If you’d like to ask me anything, please get in touch. I look forward to seeing if I can do something exceptional for you!  less
