Maryland, United States
At this stage of my life I am a fiction author, first and foremost, but I wear many hats! With a 30+-year history and education in editing and publishing, as well as psychology, I have introduced Clasid Consultants Publishing with a handful of specialist staff members to help writers of all media produce a better product. I am a firm believer that the meticulous high quality of the "old-fashioned" way of publishing, which took months and even years, CAN be accomplished with the new rapidity of our techno-change-o world. All it takes is a little knowledge, which I gladly impart for no-charge, and an eye for accuracy, lay-out, design, and consistency. I have extremely reasonable fees for coaching/ghost writing (all types of publications), edit/rewrite, copy-editing, proofreading, graphics design, full publication layout-and-design, and eBook publishing. At present, I have not expanded to hard-print, but I can assist in finding a "network partner" referral. My main concern is that the written material be accurate, consistent, beautiful to behold, and interesting to read. I've been told I'm far too generous with my specialties, but I love helping others writers be the best they can be. I willingly do no-charge reviews on short stories and novels, as I hope you will check out my fiction selections on amazon.com and do a review for me--good, bad, whatever--we all learn from each other and our perceptions change and evolve with every life we touch. Let me know how I can assist you! As hobbies, I am an avid reader, musician (singer/piano/Celtic harp), mediocre artist, and Advanced Clinical Psychological Hypnotherapist (A.C.P.H). I am spiritual and creative. Creativity comes in many forms: music, art, gourmet cooking, poetry, and novels, layout, design, and final printing prep. I am an animal lover with a beautiful Turkish Angora Cat named Molly. I am an advocate and speaker for the Lupus Foundation (www.lupus.org), Women's Rights and "How Not To Be A Victim," as well as esoteric subjects dealing with hypnotherapy, psychic dreams and visions, telepathy, unexplained phenomena, angels, demons, and gods/goddesses. I am happily married to my dearest friend, Sid.
