I am a talented writer and editor who has 14 years of combined professional experience. I have copy edited for a small, regional publication called "Up and Coming Weekly" and am the owner of a writing, inventing and editorial services firm called "Creative Services/The Breadwinner." I can write and edit small or large pieces depending on the need and I am familiar with all the major editing and grammatical styles (APA, AP, MLA). I am an aspiring screenwriter whose portfolio includes three (3) short scripts called "Little Girl Gray," "The Wrong Relationship," and "Nineteen Ways Newspapers Neglect Those Needing Work," one longer script called "Flowers in Her Hair," and one adaptation from a treatment called "The High Life." Simultaneously, I have just finished my very first self-created feature film length comedy about handicapped people entitled "Crazy Cash"
as well as the writing of the pilot episode to a soap opera of my own creation entitled "Echoes in the Shadows," both of which appear here.

Also here are my twenty-five (25) children's book manuscripts and one dime novel for teenagers entitled, "The Ramblings of Many."
