About meFreelance copy editor and writer working out of my home.

As a writer, published three nonfiction novels I Think, Therefore Who Am I?, Memoir of a Psychedelic Year,; Digging Deeper, A Memoir of the Seventies; and most recently, Getting Real, Drifting into Middle Age.

As a copy editor, I edit and style manuscripts for several mainstream publishers. You don't make a whole lot of money doing this but it buys me the time to write when I'm not editing.
