My story is not unusal. It is merely a tale of desperation, struggle, hard work, and joy. My career started at BET in there publications division. They distributed Heart & Soul magazine, Emerge magazine, and BET Weekend. I was their Associate Researcher until my job moved to New York with Vanguarde media, who bought the publications division from BET. I moved on to U.S. News & World Report as a Researcher. After starting a family, I worked briefly with the Washington Post as a Researcher, but went on to USA Today's USA Weekend as a Research Manager to create their fact-checking department. I worked as the Managing Editor and Writer for Lee Bailey's EURWeb blog, EUR This 'N That.com for five years and am now seeking a new opportunity. The extraordinary people and experiences that I have encountered in my career led me to a writing and editing business of my own. I have written articles for Heart & Soul magazine, Howard magazine, Upscale magazine and held a column in BLAC Detroit. I edit everything from fiction and non-fiction books to grants and the writing journey continues...hopefully, with you.
