If you visit, you’ll find links to my YouTube channel, which covers my life as a writer, complete with advice based on two years as a freelancer, and information about the services I offer, including all manners of editing. I was editor-in-chief of my own magazine for over a year, and have testimonials to back up my rep.
I also created a community, A Peculiar Place, which I think every reader of mine should check out.
