Professional Experience

I am a detail-oriented freelance writer and editor with more than fifteen years of professional experience. My clips run the gamut from business to business trade magazines to consumer-facing in air publications. I specialize in writing about wine, travel and health (both fitness and healthcare). I've ghost-written hundreds of articles and full-length books. I also write romance fiction under a pen name and copyedit full-length manuscripts.
