Welcome!

Hello, hello! I’m so glad you stopped by!

For me, writing is like breathing: I can’t live without it — historical fiction and technical articles are favorites.

For the same reason I write, I also love to edit fiction and textbooks. I should put my bachelor’s in Professional Writing and master’s in English Education to some use, right? 🙂

In addition to being a writer and editor, I’m the Assistant Director of PENCON, a division of the Christian Editor Network that was started by Kathy Ide to help Christian editors network and find clients. I’m honored to work with such an inclusive team. For #PENCON2017 we had Cecil Murphey as our keynote speaker. Here’s his endorsement:

“I’ve taught in approximately 260 conferences during my career. PENCON 2017 ranks right at the top. The efficiency of Jenne Acevedo, Christi McGuire, and Kathy Ide, stand out. Not only efficient but they and their staff members such as Tisha Martin, were self-giving, never too busy to answer questions, and did everything they could to make us comfortable.

For anyone interested in editing—beginner or professional—PENCON does an excellent job in providing classes to educate and encourage.”

—Cecil Murphey, author or ghostwriter of 140 including 90 Minutes in Heaven (Don Piper), Gifted Hands (Ben Carson), Rebel with a Cause (Franklin Graham). He has also written three books for writers, including Ghostwriting: The Murphey Method.

Also, I’m involved in a myriad of wonderful things: advocating Autism Awareness | ASL interpreting | tutoring | training horses | photography | and vintage collecting (yes, I probably have enough vintage to open a museum).

It’s great to have you! Please stay as long as you’d like.
