Professional Writing and Editing Services in Minneapolis

"Thanks, Cindy. I’m always amazed when I read your copy at how clear and concise it is.  Thank you so much."--Valerie Loyd, TieYak


For many people, writing is a chore. Me, I'm happiest when my fingers are on the keyboard, tapping out copy that informs, motivates or persuades. I take the stress out of producing your corporate brochure, annual report or newspaper ad.

I interview you, your employees, your experts, to fully understand your product, service or the story you need to tell. And then I commit it to paper (computer) so you can read it, make changes if needed, and send it out to the world.

If your copy needs to be heavy and industrial, or light and fluffy, I can handle it. When you need a writer with versatility, contact me.


One of my corporate mentors once asked me, "Honey, do you think you write deathless prose?" The point is, everybody needs an editor. To clarify, to catch lapses in spelling and grammar. To let your voice come through and tell your story in the best way possible. Why suffer the embarrassment of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes? A recent study in Great Britain found that revenue on Internet retail sites was twice as high after spelling errors were corrected.

I've edited novels, memoirs and a couple of nursing textbooks. Whether you need copyediting or substantive editing, let me help you look your best.


It's an ugly job, but somebody's gotta do it. Working for corporate clients such as Select Comfort, Thomson Reuters, and Patterson Companies, I've developed an eagle's eye for typos, trademarks and punctuation. From fine-print legal disclaimers to human resources manuals and web sites, I find the errors that spell-check misses. An ounce of prevention is worth hundreds of dollars in re-work.

Media Relations

Not only can I write your press release, I can distribute it for you, too, to the media that best reach your target audience. I can get the media out to see you, too. I once organized a press conference for a political campaign announcement in an afternoon (while flying down the freeway at 70 mph). Eighteen hours later, the daily newspaper and the local public radio station sent reporters out to cover the candidate. I help you define and refine your message so it's delivered correctly to the proper audience.
