I have been a professional writer for over 30 years. I have edited other writers' work for the past five years. I also conducted writing seminars/workshops/classes for aspiring writers. I can tear a manuscript apart when it is headed in the wrong direction and provide constructive criticism to get the writer and his manuscript pointed in the right direction. I am incredibly detailed in all aspects of writing from the flow of the manuscript to grammar and punctuation. It is always my goal to move the manuscript from an idea to a successful piece of work.
