Writer. Editor. Designer. Available for Hire!

The Pen Life is all about the written word and the voice. It’s all about the writing process, publishing, and the creative life. I’m offering writing, editorial, and design services. Here is my resume.

I have a M.S. in Writing: Publishing from Portland State University, Oregon, USA. My background is in Education, and I will always be an educator at heart. I edit because I enjoy helping others in their writing journey. I will accept editorial assignments of fiction and general interest non-fiction books, journal articles, newsletters, corporate publications, academic theses and dissertations, and much more. Check out my services to see what I can do for you. I have experience with:

  • Academic essays and theses using MLA, APA styles
  • General interest non-fiction
  • Newsletters
  • Adult fiction: literary, multicultural, contemporary women’s fiction, contemporary fiction
  • Young Adult fiction & non-fiction

As a writer, my interests have an eclectic mix. My writing interests are: current events, business, travel & world cultures, cultural identity, psychology, expat life & third culture kid experience, women’s issues, relationships & sexuality, food & cooking, literary criticism, world literature, rhetoric & composition. While I’m open to copyediting any type of writing, I prefer to manuscript critique or developmental edit topics of my interest.

Check out my blog! Thanks for visiting and feel free to drop me a note. By the way, if you are looking for photographers, book publicists, social media experts, or other services, I can recommend a few talented people I know.

I can also design book covers, newsletters, and other publications. My design services are not limited to books. Brochures, pamplets, flyers, restaurant menus, and collaterals are some of the services that I offer. I enjoy working with authors, small-to-medium businesses and organizations, and any individual.
