About

"The world is full of words. Finding the right words requires skill and obsession." - Lee Caleca

Award-winning author and Book Award Judge, I routinely exceed expectations with all the attention to detail you expect from a top editor and writer.

I have a prolific practice covering several career fields, and I provide fully edited and proofed work. Recently retired from one of the top U.S. communications companies, I deliver the equivalent experience of a full team of writing professionals to you and your assignment. I invest 60+ hours a week of commitment and dedication to my craft.

This is a pursuit of art, inspiration, and excellence. With diverse personal knowledge obtained from many years of professional, societal, and artistic endeavors, I provide a perspective rarely found in independent freelance writers.

I've been writing and editing for more than 40 years and worked as the health and nutrition columnist then managing editor for the now defunct Status Magazine Nashville. My instincts for what makes good writing have been honed by many years of creative journalism, research, and personal experiences.

As an author, I'm sensitive to the writer's expression. You won't find a more thorough eye for detail, structure, and consistency. I'll make sure your fiction project maintains theme, plot, timeline, and character consistency or that the opening to your nonfiction book presents a tangible thesis to be expanded throughout the content. I can illuminate what you've written and make it more engaging.

Author of 2 novels and ghostwriter of dozens of fiction and non-fiction books and articles.

B.A.Sc. in Fashion Design - International Academy of Design-Nashville.

2x Juice Award winner - For "Exemplifying Outstanding Use of Creative Juices" by IADT.

HubNuggets Award for best new writer by HubPages.

I'm responsible, well organized, mature and always submit work in a timely manner. I will meet or exceed your project criteria with creative/technical research, writing and editing skills combined with experience and vision.
