Author Coach, Editor, Publishing Consultant

Self-employed for the last 30+ years, I have been editing since the mid-'90s, editing articles, books, brochures, flyers, menus, etc. I started editing when I worked for a local newspaper, then went on to own a newspaper before relocating. Now my main focus is working with authors to see their work come to fruition, which I thoroughly enjoy. I have also written articles, as well as ghostwritten a few books for my clients. I have written nine of my own ebooks, which are in the Kindle store of Amazon and in Smashwords. I previously wrote for the Examiner website, CBS Local-Sacramento, and Believe.com. While working for the monthly newspaper, I authored articles, edited the writers, designed all print media, as well as designed the ads for the paper. I spent 18 months working with a multi-million dollar non-profit as their Public Relations Director where I implemented new events to promote their cause. My objective is to find a project that is a challenge, one that causes me to reach for the stars on behalf of the one paying for the project to be done.
