I have two decades of experience writing business-to-business and business-to-consumer copy about all types of topics, from the simple to the highly technical. My copy will clearly convey your message, promote your brand, and persuade your target market.

Here is a list of just some of the types of projects I can handle for you:

Advertising (online and print)
Annual reports
Book jackets
Direct mail packages
E-mail campaigns
Naming (product line, tagline, slogan, etc.)
Newsletters (online and print)
Point-of-sale materials (displays, postcards, shelf-talkers, etc.)
Press releases
Product catalogs
Radio scripts
Sales kits
Sales letters
Website content (Search Engine Optimization, landing pages)
White papers

Have something else in mind? No problem. Simply contact me today to discuss your needs and I will give you a no-obligation cost estimate.

I charge by the project; this makes the process fair and more cost-effective for my clients.


Whether it’s for a company brochure, a manuscript, or web content, your copy must be clear, accurate, and grammatically correct. You also need to ensure that your copy has a smooth, logical flow; your meaning is clear; your message is consistent; and your professionalism shines through with every word. As a copyeditor, I take on that task for you.

Going beyond traditional proofreading, I do the following:

• I check your copy for correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
• I ensure proper word usage and consistency.
• I verify facts and accuracy.
• I correct formatting and typographical errors.
• I restructure awkward sentences and paragraphs.
• I rewrite copy as necessary, both to improve readability and to clarify and/or enhance your message.
• I also check style against particular publication guidelines if required.

Manuscript copyediting rates are based on total word count (industry standard: 250 words per page, double-spaced, 12-point standard font with 1-inch margins) and turnaround time. Other copyediting project rates are based on the type of document and word count. I can easily work with either electronic files or hard copy.

Send me your current project—be it a finished piece or a draft in progress—and I will provide you with an objective review at no charge. While I won’t rewrite your copy, I will make specific recommendations for revisions, for improving the effectiveness of your marketing message, and for increasing your response rate. This will also give you a preview of how I work as a copywriter/copyeditor and how you can benefit from my services.
