Playing with language, whether on paper or with my kids, is what helps make life interesting.
I have been writing reports and stories as long as I can remember. My sisters taught me to read by age 5, so that I was able to read to my first grade class The Little Red Hen. It's only natural that I write and edit everything from technical to romance.
I have been working professionally since 1992, when I found that people kept asking me to write or edit something for them. Newspaper articles. Magazine articles. Even an Insurance Underwriters Guide. Over the years, I've written a monthly newspaper column, many magazine and newspaper articles, as well as 5 books under my name, and have contributed to 4 others.
Now I am providing technical editing services to government and industry customers, as well as working on a romance novel (for the fun of it). Two of the 5 books I've written will be available spring of 2005, about school clubs.
