The right word at the right time is like precious gold set in silver.

Proverbs 25:11

Words matter.

I’ve been a logophile since I could read. I hid under the covers late at night to finish the latest Pippi Longstocking book and checked out every volume in the We Were There series of children’s historical novels from the local library. It wasn’t until (ahem) later in life that I realized I could (almost) make a living doing what I loved without being a classroom teacher.

When I was downsized out of an administrative position in 2009, I decided to follow my heart and put my love for grammar and passion for excellent writing to good use. I’ve edited dissertations, nonfiction and fiction manuscripts, newsletters and websites. Helping writers convey “what’s burning inside” them with clarity and conviction is what lights my fire.
