Making Your Bright Ideas Shine!
Welcome to SHINY IDEAS! But why that name? I love gathering ideas and words and arranging them like the bright jewels they are.
Your ideas – academic, business, or fiction – must be clear and bright for your readers. That’s where I come in.
I honor your story, research, or business, retaining your unique voice while I polish your writing for consistency, clarity, and most especially, interest. In researching and writing business or web documents, I keep your goal in mind and ensure clarity and an SEO emphasis.
I have edited everything from academic papers for professional publication to published novels, business reports, and educational materials, and I've written web content for several businesses.
My two humanities degrees studying the thought and religions of other cultures and other world views also uniquely position me to work with both English speakers and ESL writers.
