Since 1999 my fiction has won awards and even earned me a free ride to a prestigious Master’s program in creative writing at Boston University. Now what I find most satisfying is to stretch my creative muscles on behalf of others to exceed their editorial expectations and help make them happier as published authors or as corporate clients.
