“One of my favorite things to do is make complicated information clear, understandable and interesting to anyone. So whether I’m writing, ghost writing or editing, my goal is to create engaging, understandable and well-written prose. I have done this for many well-regarded publications and would love to do it for you!”

Professional, respectful, creative, and technically precise, Barbara always meets a deadline with ready-to-go copy.
