The guru of Services Drafts Linda S. Patterson Committed to excellence. While raising three amazing daughters, I worked as a special-education teacher at all grade levels, in four different states. I now do work as a part-time volunteer with an adult literacy program in Houston, Texas, as well as in a middle-school mentoring program. I read voraciously and am continually struck by how many writers of books I read online really need a better editor. I enjoy a good bit of traveling and no longer want to be constrained by a set schedule in a set location. I'm looking forward to a rewarding new career in online proofreading and editing to support both my desire to see the world and my desire to improve it through clearer communication.
