I began my career writing for Copley Radio News Service, and then moved into advertising, marketing, public relations, and eventually into writing and editing non-fiction books. I have been a full-time author and editor for over 25 years.

I frequently work as a “book doctor,” revising and rewriting manuscripts for publishers, editors, and authors. For two years, I wrote a monthly audio newsletter on human resource management, and I spent three years editing and writing features and newsletter articles for International Ministries.

I received a B.A. in English and American Literature from the University of California, San Diego, and have taught courses in writing and substantive editing for the University of California, San Diego Extension. I helped found the San Diego Chapter of the Independent Writers of Southern California, and I am a member of the Author’s Guild and the Editorial Freelancers Association. I currently live in Surprise, AZ, but I work with clients from all over the country.
