ABOUT

Need words?

Not just any words, but the right words, the right tone, the right structure, and the right approach for your audience?

Let’s talk about how I can help. I’m Wendy Lyons Sunshine, an award-winning, best-selling writer and editor with years of experience:

  • Writing, reporting, and editing
  • Interviewing and literature search
  • Articles, books, reports, content, and proposals
  • Brainstorming, collaboration, storytelling, and ghostwriting

My specialty is refining and clarifying complex material to make it accessible for a wide readership. I can fine tune language, pinpoint facts to satisfy fussy specialists, and use storytelling to engage readers.

Big ideas, made clear

My background includes years in staff and freelance roles and a range of credits and bylines. I’ve co-authored books with experts and written articles and essays for The New York TimesWorth, D Magazine, Fort Worth Weekly, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Houston Business Journal, EndocrineWeb, ScientificAmerican.com, OnEarth, Planning, and many other publications.  

For assistance with freelance writing and editing assignments, please get in touch.
