I am a professional writer and editor experienced in technical and creative projects, both print and web. As a writing coach, I can guide you through the writing process from idea inception and prewriting through word choice and proofreading. My coaching specialties include writing process and tools, technical writing, communications, academic essays, creative writing, and understanding literature and difficult prose.

My Background

I have studied technical writing, editing, creative writing, literature and film extensively and have more than 16 cumulative years experience in professional writing, editing and coaching.

I earned a BA and MA (ABT) in Literature and a certificate in Technical Writing and Editing – all from the University of Washington. I diagram sentences for fun and do crossword puzzles with a pen.
