Jim Peets, A Thousand Words

My writing has been published in local, national and international consumer and trade publications, in academic journals and on various websites and blogs. I am currently writing book reviews.

In addition to my writing, I enjoy working with writers as an editor. 

To have me review your book, or to work with me, please contact me:

My personal writing is eclectic but tends to focus on health, fitness and ways to stay vibrant as we age.  I combine this passion for writing with teaching Essentrics Aging Backwards® fitness workouts.


Christine has provided editing and proof-reading services for several of my books and I would highly recommend her for any editing project. I always appreciate her constructive edits and attention to detail. She offers suggestions that make the book better, yet she never loses my voice.
It was a pleasure to work with Christine as a copy editor for my novel Not Your Penance. She was thorough and, refreshingly, detail oriented. Communicating with her was a pleasure. Her work was insightful, efficiently done and promptly delivered. I highly recommend her as an editor.
Christine Peets gave me confidence to pursue my writing ambitions. Sound advice, structure and encouragement were part of her workshops. Thanks Christine.

Christine’s thorough preparation and attention to detail has been a tremendous help in the success of each of our companies. Her ability to write with such clarity and conviction is most beneficial since we deal with very sensitive and emotive issues with our clients. I look forward to working with Christine on our upcoming projects.

Christine Peets edited my first novel, The Whistle. Her guidance and advice was well-founded. She was so easy to work with. I found the whole experience of working with her delightful.
