I have taught English for 17 years and am well versed in grammar, syntax, and various writing styles. I have a passion for writing and enjoy the power of words. I can be succinct or I can let words linger on the page for emotional effect. I am not afraid to take risks, but can follow directions too. I have had my poetry published, and currently have a contract offer for an adult fiction novel I am writing. I am familiar with both AP and MLA citations an some scientific citing as well. While it has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, I know that words can create a picture far beyond anything any artist could portray. Words hold life and death and I play with them very carefully. I will create more than you ask for because it is who I am and what I love to do. You will not be disappointed in the work I do for you.
