Over the years I've written a range of articles on just about everything – school boards and board rooms, ghost towns and master planned communities, models and not-so-model citizens – as a freelancer for Phoenix Magazine, Phoenix New Times, Scottsdale Magazine, Meetings & Conventions Magazine, Newsweek, the Scottsdale Tribune, and the Scottsdale Independent. I have also published fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in The North American Review, The Southeast Review, the American Literary Review, Hayden's Ferry Review, Sudden Stories: The Mammoth Anthology of Miniscule Fiction, and Micro Fiction.
My editing and proofreading experiences range from cleaning up advertising copy to red-penciling novel galleys. When editing, my goals are to encourage the written voice, improve the ease of reading, and attend to grammar and punctuation matters, just like Mrs. Sible taught me in 7th grade English class at Centennial Junior High School. With each project I provide written comments that outline all facets of a piece, from the big picture to the small details.
