I like to play with words - make sure they're creative, informative and comfortable with where they're standing in relation to one another. I'm a stickler when it comes to proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation so you can rely on my fresh pair of eyes and my sharpened pencil. I respect good communication and do what I say I'm going to do. I'm a published author, writing coach and teacher. I teach creative writing to adults and children. I also teach editing. I understand how a story should be structured, how characters develop and the importance of good dialogue. I know how to format for various forms of publication. I'm also a visual artist with a keen eye for aesthetics. Yo hablo español también. I've worked with poetry, short story, children's books, scripts, personal essay/memoir, travel stories, blogging on Wordpress, informational articles, and novels. I look forward to making your story shine!
