what i do

i write!

i write for myself, for publication, and freelance for others.

additionally, i am available for copyediting, layout, design and production of books and other publication. and, i am not e.e. cummings, and even have a caps button on my keyboard. SEE!


have laptop, will travel. come to think of it, with the "inter-web," i don't even have to travel. i am only a click away from wherever you are in the grit-eating world!


decades of lawyering have required me to be very precise in my writing. the chance misplaced comma or semicolon in a legal document can change its meaning. even now, i am precise in my writing.


work i might do for you will be sent in editable form, in microsoft word. if you prefer, you can receive it as an adobe pdf document, or even adobe indesign. formatting is extra. a lot extra.

get in touch

feel free to write me, using the form

why don't I show an email address? simple enough: bad people "mine" the internet with programs that seek out email addresses, compiled them, and sell them to spammers. sorry, but no thanks. i don't want anything bigger, smaller, faster and i don't want a king's diamonds.
