About the Author

Dominique Lambright is the owner of DML Editing & Writing. She is in control of all operations as far as book editing, book formatting, coaching, blogging, ghostwriting, document editing, creating lessons, as well as all website and social media aspects.I have two beautiful daughters who keep me focused and help me strive to keep working at being a better person. I do everything for them and our future. I have been writing for as long as I remember. I have loved words since I first learned how to write in Kindergarten. Writing has been a consistent hobby turned career choice. I wrote for fun up until about 10th grade in high school, that’s when I knew that I wanted to become a writer professionally.During 2014 is when I became more serious about it and tried to get clients outside of college. It went well. I created an account on a site called Thumbtack and went from there. Many people needed the services that I offered, and I knew from there on out I was ready to become a professional business owner. In 2015, I moved away from Thumbtack a bit and officially created my website. I figured if I was going to do this, I was going to do it right. Ever since then, I have been happily continuing to build my clientele and business relationships. This is my passion ^_^.
