Every writer needs an editor. Here's why I'm your guy:
I was an editor for 35 of an almost 40-year career at the Daily Herald, third-largest newspaper in Illinois. I edited stories of professionally trained newspaper reporters, work that won numerous journalism awards. I also wrote an award-winning column for more than two decades, so I haven't lost the writer's perspective.
I also recruited and edited the work of people from all walks of life who had never written for a newspaper. The professionals and novices who worked with me will tell you I have strong technical skills, know how to make writing ''sing'' and that I'm passionate about my craft. I'm also a good mentor, fun to work with. Today, I'm applying those skills as a freelance editor, working on everything from memoirs to novels to stories about business
