Writing

Rewriting

If you agree with my manuscript evaluation and proposed outline for revision but do not have the time or desire to make the changes yourself, I can rewrite your nonfiction manuscript to reach the intended audience. I begin by rewriting a section for your approval.

Corporate and personal histories

I can write the history of your organization or your own personal history in a narrative style that will engage readers. I can interview people and draw out their stories. I am a good listener.

I am the author of two local history books, Driven by a Dream: The Story of Ongwanada 1948–1998 (Kingston: Quarry Press, 1998, 196 pages) and Purpose & Passion: Kingston General Hospital Auxiliary 1905–2005. (Kingston: KGH Auxiliary, 2005, 276 pages).

I worked as a communications officer in the nonprofit sector for almost 20 years, where I wrote and produced annual reports, newsletters, news releases, brochures, and web content. I’m also a former reporter for the Kingston Whig-Standard.
