See my interview on Nancy Sanders' blog:
I do manuscript edits/critiques, mostly for nonfiction. I don't just post corrections; I explain why I'm recommending certain edits and always specify exactly what writers can do to improve their work in general.
I am available to do school presentations in the Sacramento area that center around my books or that are about different aspects of writing. For further information, please fill out the Contact Me form and I will get back to you.
