I'm a New Yorker living in the Seattle area. I have yet to abandon my gritty and fast paced work ethic for the easy going life of the west coast. I don't think I want to.I am a certified English teacher and editor. I have worked on content editing and proofreading for major educational publishing houses, as well as working on my first and second (hopefully soon to be published) novels.I also am a freelance editor for other writers, a ghostwriter, and an essay writer and tutor. If all the subcategories of writing were hats, then I have worn almost all of them.
