MAD about Words


Winter Park, Florida



Fiction, nonfiction (memoir, self-help, business)


MAD about Words is named as a play on my initials and my love for writing. I have 30+ years experience in publishing and writing consulting. In addition to copy editing and substantive editing, I offer manuscript evaluations and build author websites.First, I listen to you.Every writer and every writing project is different.That’s why I offer a free 30-minute introductory consultation by phone. Before you invite me to read your manuscript, before I can advise you on your web presence, I feel it’s important we get to know each other.I want to hear about your writing, your goals, and the kind of support you’re looking for. I’ll tell you about how I work with writers and answer your questions and concerns.If you decide to proceed, I’ll provide a detailed written proposal with a payment schedule for your consideration. Even if you decide not to work with me, you’ll have a proposal to measure other offers against.
