My Featured Blogger this week is Tricia Sankey, whose “musings of a milspouse” site is a long-standing favorite, so I’m remiss in having taken so long to share her with you. A professional editor and ghostwriter, Tricia, who also “plays with words in her free time,” loves “helping (her) clients crush through their writing block and create something they can be assured is well-written.” And indeed, she knows how. The proof is in her own writing!
