Mary L. Dennis Writing and Editing

I've been producing and perfecting written pieces of all kinds for 30 years. Whether it's a book, a thesis, web content or a blog article, I deliver your project on time.

I have wanted to be a writer since I learned to read. To that end, I majored in English literature with minors in drama and education. My earliest jobs included proofreader and advertising copywriter. I continued to use these job skills as I moved on to writer/editor for an educational software developer (Sunburst Communications) and then as writer/editor for Novel Units, which produces hundreds of teacher's guides for various literature titles. (These are basically lesson plans that include study guides, quizzes, vocabulary and so forth--a time-saving teaching unit.) When that company sold to a bigger publisher, I became totally freelance. I continued to write literature guides for other companies as well as a book for high school students called "Creative Writing." I wrote a book called "Success Without College: Careers in Cosmetology" for Barron's Educational Series. For Amsco School Publications, I wrote a number of test preparation books in the ELA field, a four-grade series of literature textbooks, and a vocabulary review book. My "English Language Arts Review" book was used in a wide range of grades--from 6th grade gifted to college remedial. When Amsco sold to a larger publisher, I wrote stories and lesson plans for Time for Kids magazine, wrote and edited online courses for Barnes and Noble Open University, and began to move further into content writing with marketing copy, articles for websites and blogs, and other online courses. I researched and wrote two Newspapers in Education supplements, one on drug and alcohol abuse and the other on tobacco cessation. (Links to PDFs are on my website.) I have also enjoyed editing dozens of books for first-time and long-time authors.
