I have been writing either recreationally or professionally most of my life. I have been published in newspapers, magazines, and online (including some small success with VERY short e-zine articles). I have successfully ghostwritten several projects for people with a good story but no literary voice. (I am of course contractually prohibited from discussing details of those projects.)
I taught high school English for nine years, three in one school and six in another. Proofreading and editing come as second nature to me, but I am capable of adjusting to a casual, informal style. I'm not a grammar nazi unless that is what is called for by the writer. While I love creative writing such as fiction and poetry, I can usually complete non-fiction projects more quickly. Creative writing usually requires more incubation time.
