About

Struggling to shape a draft? Buried under a mound of information that needs order, focus, punch?

Let me help. 

I’m Wendy Lyons Sunshine, freelance writer, editor, and collaborator. My toolbox includes a BA in English, phi beta kappa, an MA in professional and technical communication, and more than 20 years of print and online publication experience. I love interviewing experts, digging through research studies, organizing content, and weaving a coherent message from a tangle of material.

Founded on facts. Stories that make a difference.

My specialty is distilling complex ideas into clear, compelling prose. Examples include:

  • An award-winning best-seller that continues to top multiple Amazon.com categories
  • An information security white paper for a medical device company
  • A ghosted blog post for the chairman of a wealth management firm
  • An evidence-based parenting book that garnered a six-figure advance, coming next year
  • A ghosted memoir for an industry innovator and public figure
  • A science-based lifestyle book manuscript for a medical doctor
  • Grant writing that won over $4 million in contract awards
  • Educational e-books and web content for public health organizations
  • Profiles of entrepreneurs for business magazines
  • Hundreds of short-form and long-form articles for dozens of media outlets

When you need a skilled freelance writer or editorial partner… when words and meaning matter… for stories that make a difference, contact me and let’s discuss your project.
