Story
Tagline
It Matters How You Say It!
Introduction
After many years working in K-14 education and sales management, I started my own freelance writing and editing business, Writing It Right For You, in July 2008. I work with individuals, graduate and post-graduate students, and businesses in the United States, Canada and eight other countries on a variety of academic and business projects.

In my related business, Detroit Ink Publishing, I work with authors to prepare and publish eBooks and reports.

My specialties include academic editing for graduate students (including ESL students), ghost-writing, manuscript preparation, eBook preparation and publishing, web content, blog posts, social media marketing and networking, small business consulting, and business writing and editing on a variety of topics.

I also maintain six personal, political, and business blogs; I also do affiliate marketing.

I have an excellent command of the written and spoken English language and an "eagle eye" for grammatical errors. I have been known to take out my little red Sharpie and correct the errors on signs in stores.

I work from my home office on a MacBook Pro, a MacBook Air, an iPad3, and a Kindle Fire HD. I have an iPhone5 and a Samsung Galaxy 3. I'm a "Gadget Girl".

I collect coffee cups from around the world; I have 100+ in my collection.

I love what I do--every day is different; I meet the most wonderful people from all over the world; and I work for a great boss--myself.

On September 11, 1998, I married to my best friend, Keith Owens. I have three exceptionally awesome and talented and beautiful grown children, the cutest grandson in the entire world, and two very spoiled rescue dogs.
Bragging rights
I have 3 successful adult children and 3 successful adult stepchildren! My grandson is the cutest baby in the whole wide world!

INSPIRATION FOR TODAY

You must strive to find your own voice because the longer you
wait to begin, the less likely you are to find it at all. ~ Robin Williams in Dead Poet's Society

OK. All of this cooking has made me hungry. What should I have for breakfast? How about a fruit and green veggie smoothie?
