Does the thought of writing your own bio for your website or Linkedin make you panic? I know I did. That's why I've hired Lisa. In fact, I've hired Lisa more than once to write my bio. I'm continually amazed at how she's been able to summarize my strengths, talents and personality, by asking some simple questions. She took my answers, and turned them into something that I read and thought "wow, is that really me"? (and she made it FUN to work with her!) Whether she's writing an article, a profile or whatever else, I enjoy being the reader of her writing.

My experience working with Megan has been absolutely amazing! Unlike other editors I have worked with, her editing style matched the tone of my writing. You can't even tell where she edited my work. I would highly recommend her and I plan on hiring her for many future projects.

I worked with Orrin Grey and Castle Danger Press numerous times during my tenure as the managing editor for Skull Island eXpeditions, a fiction imprint of Privateer Press. I commissioned Orrin to write short stories, novellas, and tabletop gaming material. Orrin was exceedingly professional and never failed to deliver high-quality work by the deadline.

Jeffrey was very helpful to me as I pursued my Master's Degree over the past few years. Because over ten years had passed before returning to school, I realized the need for an editor who could help me clarify my thinking and simplify my writing. On more than one occasion, this resulted in finished papers that professors recommended be submitted for publishing.

As a copyeditor, Erin Griggs is thorough and possessed of a discerning eye, catching those things that it’s all too easy for a writer to miss once they’ve lived with a manuscript for a considerable amount of time. As a content reader, she excels, bringing a broad base of academic knowledge, an understanding of genre conventions, and ability to frame story questions with sensitivity, never imposing personal preference on an author’s intent or vision.

I’ve worked with Rich on a considerable number of writing projects for proposals and general marketing solutions. I can say without a doubt that he is the most talented and dependable writer/editor with whom I’ve worked. Rich provided editorial leadership to our entire team. He has the self-confidence, skill, and fearlessness that our team not only depended upon, but that we learned from in delivering winning messages.

About

Writing is my passion! I love all types of writing. Assisting businesses and people with my skills as a wordsmith combines two of my favorites: helping people solve a problem and writing. The ability to communicate well is essential to any profession. Writing well and succinctly is a true gift. It's a gift I honed well while in broadcast journalism and outdoor advertising. These are two mediums where time and space are limited and priced at a premium. As a journalist, I would spend the entire day researching, interviewing and gathering information on a few topics. Then I would have to condense everything I had learned into a 30-second to 90-second story. Getting it right was essential as there were millions of viewers who could quickly vote with their remote that my story wasn't interesting. Getting the facts correct was equally as important because those same million viewers could instantly discredit me by revealing inaccuracies in my story. Do we all know Brian Williams? In outdoor advertising, yes billboards, you have even less time to capture someone's attention, about 10 seconds. Usually the people you are trying to reach with your message are moving at a high rate of speed and have lots of other distractions. I once helped a gentleman in Louisiana propose to his girlfriend on a billboard. I was so excited to help him and impressed with his creative proposal. Unfortunately, the message was so eye-catching that a child of his fiance's best friend saw it as our team was placing the billboard panels. My client's plan was to drive her past the billboard, but she received a phone call from the friend before he had a chance. The story ends with a happily married couple, just not the proposal he had planned --so not all bad. Most of my career has been writing brochures, web copy, compelling emails, case studies, invitations, company descriptions, pleas for funding or volunteers for a cause and much more. I have the unique ability to put myself in someone else's spot and determine how to not just capture his/her attention but to act on that emotion. I ask myself: What would make me visit this company? What would make me donate to this cause? What would make me respond to this email? As my husband likes to say, I have the gift of gab, referring to me as the "perfect talking machine" -- which is ideal when you need someone to write conversationally or naturally. This style of writing isn't a turn-off because you don't feel like you are being "sold" something. My talents lie in my ability to tell stories. Convincing people to use your company, product or service is often telling them the story behind why you are in business and how you have helped other clients. Overloading prospective clients with facts and features is necessary at the right time, but initially you have to get them interested in how you can help them achieve their goals. This usually happens because you tell them a good story. Let me tell your story for you. I promise to impress! Thanks for your time and attention. Have a great remainder of your day!
