I Am Kathy.

I've harnessed my lifelong passion for words into not only my own writing, but a business in which I can help you with all kinds of publication-related services—everything from editing and proofreading to ghostwriting and consulting. Find out here how I can help you bring your ideas to life!

Few things compare to the satisfaction of bringing together my thoughts, forming them into words, and creating a polished piece—a book, article, essay, or blog that allows me to share my insights with others. In addition to my own writing, I also do writing for others—those who have lots of knowledge and expertise and plenty of ideas, but who lack the time, interest, or sometimes the ability to write. It’s called ghostwriting, and hiring me to do it is a perfect way for you to get your ideas in front of an appreciative audience.

I love to edit! As author H. G. Wells put it, “No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else’s draft.” And if I do my job well, it is like, as Bobbi Romans said, “tinsel to a Christmas tree”—the “perfect amount of sparkle without being gaudy.” The level of editing you need depends a lot on where you are in the writing process. On this site you’ll find a description of the kinds of editing I do and what you can expect to pay for each.

Maybe you need advice: someone to help with direction, inspiration, next steps to take. Need to know how to query? How to work with a publisher? How to navigate all the ins and outs of the writing and publishing process? I provide plenty of resources in a series of articles and can also give you specialized answers to specific questions.
