As author and editor, I co-wrote and edited the text and reference material for Carolyn Sullivan, the originator of Cellular Remapping. I also designed and created the training package and the accompanying website. Synopsis: Cellular Remapping is a gentle holistic therapy that uses muscle testing (applied kinesiology) to access the cellular memories that are causing stress and to identify the affirmations that will replace debilitating beliefs with life transforming convictions. It uses a combination of healing modalities such as eye movement, visualization, and chant. It is directed towards both personal and universal healing..

I co-authored, edited and arranged for the printing of a Korean War veteran’s biography titled Memories of an East London Cockney; The synopsis: Born in East London in 1930, Ken Christie was one of many children evacuated during WWII. Returning to London in time to witness the ‘doodlebugs’, Ken followed in his father’s footsteps and apprenticed to work on the river barges. A stint in the British army serving in Korea intervened before he obtained his license as a ‘freeman waterman’ on the Thames. A back injury eventually forced Ken to leave the river and become a ‘tallyman’. Years later, Ken migrated to Canada where he was able to combine his love for boating with his retail entrepreneurship. Ken, in his own style, talks about selected incidents that stand out in a life fully lived. Relive with Ken a way of life in England that in many ways has all but disappeared and chuckle as he recounts some of his British and Canadian experiences.

As a technical writer for over 30 years, I enjoy creating user documentation and educational material. Some of my favourite projects include creating instructional and colourful PowerPoint presentations, storyboards, CBTs, and, of course, courseware. My website details my expansive experience and diverse clientele. One of my major talents is being able to organize large amounts of information into easy-to-use documentation as I have good writing and thinking skills, and proficiency with authoring tools

About Me:
With over 30 years as an editor and tech writer, my proofreading skills are well-honed. I have the eye of an eagle and the ear of a hummingbird: I know when content doesn't look or sound right!

As a technical writer, one of my major talents is being able to organize large amounts of information into easy-to-use documentation as I have good writing and thinking skills, and proficiency with authoring tools. As an editor, I support others in writing short stories and in chronicling their own interesting lives and ancestry.

I'm continuing my interest in tutoring - ESL, English, MS Office and computer skills - and am now picking up clients in this field.
