I began writing in college, contributing to local newspapers, campus publications, and tutoring in essay and creative writing. I have also worked for a nationally accredited university as proofreader/editor and creator of several documents pertaining to the day to day operation of the campus. There is little in the field of the written word that I haven’t touched on, with my best work having been done in the arenas of creative writing, ghostwriting, and editing/proofreading.
