Interviewing subjects for the promotional projects I write, and computer research are two other specialties. Also, I am comfortable working with clients whose second language is English.
When I work with authors, I strive to keep their authentic voice, which is very important to them. I am a "quick study," and I come up with imaginative ideas for contributing to projects.
I am easy to work with, and am always available to have back-and-forth sessions (phone, computer, in-person) with clients regarding any questions that might arise about the projects.
