John Acker is an excellent editor. His incisive editing helped me with one of the most difficult business writing tasks: writing a cover letter. His timely and generous comments improved my cover letter significantly. Thanks in no small part to his editing work, my newly professional, audience-oriented cover letter allowed me to better demonstrate my skills to the hiring committee. I got the job!
Josh's level of commitment and dedication to my fiction manuscript has 'literally' been impressive. He has detected every punctuation fault, repeated word, and developmental area of opportunity while consistently communicating throughout the process. My editor search was extensive, and I'm certain this extremely lengthy project could not have been better polished by anyone else!
Ron Mead is organized and very prepared to meet any challenge that comes his way. His experience with grammar, which resulted in a published book, helps him to be a great editor.
Mr. Knight created a cover photo for our publishing company for the book, "Selling the Mark of the Beast, Marketing RFID: EU vs. US. He did an excellent job!
Don has helped me launch my personal brand, provide the motivation to write a book, the idea to host a book launch party, has helped my clients with numerous ways in which to improve their marketing, and has provided true mentor and leadership qualities that I have been able to learn from and evolve as a person. The man has better and more ideas than anyone I know and his creativity is second to none. What would improve my experience with Don? If he bought my lunch while giving me all this awesome help perhaps?! I don't know...it's hard to say b/c he does everything so well. Spread Good Vibes, Mike Rudd
I have had the pleasure of working with Mike Petee on a number of occasions. We first collaborated when I performed in one of two plays he wrote...and I was very impressed with his ability, which inspired me to become a playwright as well. In addition, I asked Mike to please review, and edit my work, and was very pleased and incorporated many of his ideas into my pieces. He also wrote some musical arrangements for me to use during a premier of my first play. I recommend Mike as a writer, editor, songwriter on any creative project ! Jim Stoner 740.504.9399
I love creating something from nothing - by using words. I love taking in my surroundings and capturing them for others to enjoy as well. I am also a bit of a grammar geek, and my biggest pet peeves are improper grammar usage. I love that I get to combine these two elements of my personality into my work.

I'm a people person who does a great job listening to my clients' needs. I tend to work with clients long-term because they trust me. I also studied at one of the top journalism schools in the nation and have over 20 years experience as a professional writer, editor, and researcher. I love helping people figure out exactly what it is they want to say--and then say it in a way that is both powerful and easy to understand. I also love digging into a topic to research it, understand it, and share it with others so they can use it to their advantage.
I am passionate about two things: event planning and writing. I have an English degree from Xavier and minors in Professional and Creative Writing. As for event planning: It’s always been a passion and while I’ve never done it full time—I’ve always supported people and businesses in my life because I absolutely love to do it. I’ve helped with everything from Weddings, Yoga Retreats, Family Reunions, and Vacations to the writing/editing side of the House: Content Writing, Tutoring, Social Media Marketing and much much more. Let me know your project and we will work together to make it happen!!
With half a decade of professional writing experience and a full decade of creative work under my belt, I'm well-versed in slinging words to the desired effect. I live for a good story; whether I'm reading one, or creating one. Being a professional writer is just another outlet for me to flex my creative muscles.
With my background in philosophy, I have a keen eye for critical thinking, clarity, and logical thought. I love that it allows me to blend my passion for writing with my dedication to quality work and well-developed ideas.
