About Shiny Ideas

Write. Edit. Repair.
Phyl Good

So why Shiny Ideas? Because I love words and love to pursue them, gathering and arranging them like the bright jewels they are.

Hi! My name is Phyl Good, and I'm an experienced editor and writer, lover of cats and living with several thousand books. In that order--but just barely.

I have edited several novels and nonfiction books, countless academic papers, abstracts, and doctoral dissertations, and numerous business reports, documents, and presentations. My nonfiction projects have dealt with everything from the oil industry to the insurance and winemaking industries and beyond. As well as achieving my editing and writing certifications, I have two humanities degrees that encouraged studies of the thought and religion of other cultures and studies of other world views, so I am uniquely positioned to work with ESL projects as well as those of native English speakers.
