    United States - Last active: 6 days ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 1

    I have worked with words, happily and successfully, all my adult life--starting in college, where I was editor of the school newspaper. I have worked as a reporter, writer and editor for newspapers as well as the Associated Press, in Mexico City, Pasadena CA, Gallup and Albuquerque NM, and Denver and Boulder CO. I also obtained a doctorate in clinical psychology and had a successful private practice, which of course entailed writing psychological reports and testifying in court cases. For 15 years I also wrote a weekly mental health column for my local newspaper; and in my free time I wrote and published, through The Fiction Works, five novels that still earn me a bit in royalties. Now I am back to being a full time wordsmith, skilled and experienced at writing, re-writing, editing and proofreading. If that meets you needs, here I am.
