My Mission:

Paper covers rock to win the rock-paper-scissors game in a clever way.  The paper simply floats up over the formidable rock and envelops it, diminishing its power. Overcoming barriers, as a writer, can  be difficult, sometimes. That magic piece of paper, filled with authentic and powerful rock-crushing might, can seem to be just out of reach. As a published writer and educator with over 20 years of teaching experience, I know what it’s like to try to push past those writing blocks.  At Paper/Rock Writing Consultation, I aim to help writers move past barriers that may be holding them back. I can also offer proofreading, copyediting, and developmental editing services–as well as fun, individualized courses and exercises that you can complete at your own pace–with personalized guidance along the way. Whether your goal is to complete a novel–or to just enjoy the act of writing, I’m here to help.

Services are offered online and face-to-face, either through videoconferencing or by visiting me at my home office in Snohomish, WA.  Click on the “Services” menu option above to learn more about other services that I offer, including content development for college-level English composition and Spanish courses/texts.
