Work has previously appeared: Community Newspaper, National Magazine, Book Publishing

I'm a freelance editorial professional and have experience in publishing through Air Force newspapers and religious magazines and books. I have been on the writing and the editing side and don't have a preference. The challenge of taking a blank screen and writing great copy is as much as taking a so-so manuscript and turning it into something clearly understood and interesting. I don't read blogs and don't really care for them. I'd rather sit down with a good newspaper or magazine article or a really good book. Because of the distance from Colorado Springs (45 miles) and the cost of gas, I've chosen to work from home. Here we have four dogs and five acres of land with an incredible view of the Front Range. Although most of my experience is in religious publishing, I've been able to write for two Air Force newspapers (USAF Academy and Peterson AFB) with success. Regardless of the audience, I realize I must learn who they are and write/edit to/for them. My most recent challenge is to learn how to grow a vegetable garden in Colorado. Maybe one day I'll write about my successes and the plants that didn't make it.
