Freelance Services

As I hope you sense in the excerpts from my book, All Creation Waits, I love learning and writing about the natural world, especially animals. I also love listening to and writing the stories of all kinds of people and for many formats—newspapers, websites, magazines, the newsletters and annual reports of nonprofits. Sometimes I've been hired to write the stories of organizations, including The Reformed Church in America, The Christian Reformed Church in America, Calvin College, Grand Rapids Christian Schools, and the Van Lunen Center. Here's a story I wrote for Calvin College's alumni magazine on the school's rebranding process: Who is Calvin?

Besides writing, I've served as an editor to other authors. I've helped academics make their books more accessible and engaging to a general readership. General interest authors have employed me to clean up their grammar and punctuation and generally make their prose leaner and livelier.
