Need to tell a compelling story or fine-tune an important manuscript?

I can help you deliver, whether you need help at the micro or macro level — from crafting narratives and adjusting word choice to developmental editing and organizing large quantities of information.

I’m Wendy Lyons Sunshine, an award-winning writer and best-selling author with an MA in technical communication, a BA in English, and years of publishing experience.

Over my career, I’ve been a staff editor for NYC-area publishers John Wiley & Sons and RR Bowker, partnered on 5-star books for McGraw-Hill and Revell, and contributed to newspapers, magazines, and websites from The New York Times to Occasionally I assist organizations with SEO web pages, content marketing, white papers, grant proposals, and interactive education modules.

I’m comfortable using content management systems and other digital tools, and I keep an eye on publishing trends with help from the Authors Guild, the American Society of Journalists & Authors, Study Hall,, and other resources.

Let’s talk about serving your audience.
