About meWriter and freelance copy editor working out of my home.

As a writer, I've had three nonfiction novels published: 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, which I'm reworking into a new version that I call "Ordinary Adventures."

As a copy editor, I edit and style manuscripts for several mainstream publishers, thought my contacts have been dwindling, leaving me more time to do my own writing.
