Content Marketing

Among my specializations are writing about Hawai‘i and its business, hospitality, culture, travel, agriculture, and energy. Since 1998 I have written, ghostwritten and edited many articles and blog posts as well as web content, press releases, newsletters and white papers for consumer and trade magazines, websites, blogs, small businesses, marketing and public relations companies and more.

I am a whiz-bang editor. Whatever you are writing, I can professionally edit your document or manuscript so it's ready for publication or whatever your goal. If you are self-publishing a book--and whether you hire me or someone else--make sure you have it professionally copyedited. It's a critical step. Photo: This is not how I edit.

Biographies & Memoirs

I am a ghostwriter who helps people write their memoirs, biographies or the story of their business or family history. Capturing and helping to preserve someone's story is very satisfying!
