I am a writer/editor/researcher/proofreader/ghostwriter who wants to help you with your writing project. I have a Ph.D. I have an imagination like a late afternoon in early winter. My expertise is writing/editing of all kinds: letters of application; letters of resignation; letters of complaint; letters of praise; Dear John letters; letters you know you will never send but want to have in your possession at some later date; letters written to you (by me) on any occasion, expressly in a persona determined (and defined) by you; grant proposals; fellowship/post-graduate applications (in PDF format); incendiary attacks on public officials; imaginary weather reports; bizarre (think World Weekly News) pieces starring you or friends of yours . . . or, even, your enemies; legal notices; apologies for all of our muck-ups; requests for money from various sources, including museums, tyrants, philanthropic organizations, banks and other well-set-up organizations; haikus; love letters, from either a male or female, dumped or dumpee perspective; editing of term papers, dissertations, coffee-table tomes, chapbooks, recipes, essays borrowed and blue; and many other types of writing/editing too numerous to be listed here.

My guarantee: I will work with you to improve any writing project you have. Give me 2 hours and I will transform your college essay/blog/application letter/resume into a powerful professional document!

My fees are modest: wheelbarrows of Free Trade coffee, tickets to off-planet symposiums, maps to fantastical islands, unsmoked tobacco, wines from California, support for the political candidate of my choice, knitted items, cat videos, acupuncture and ice are among the items I may be induced to accept as barter. But, as I am, like so many today, waging a battle with the Lords of Economic Downturn, and need dollars to pay my Life Fees, money is what it usually comes down to: Bucks. Simoleons. Cash. Ducats. Lucre. Dollars. Cents. Moolah.
