Writing is liberating – period. At Writing on Mirror (WOM), we have a strong respect for the writing process and its challenges. Our mission is to help you navigate this terrain, so you can enjoy the freedom that awaits you on the other side.
In addition to writing and editing industry newsletters and long-form reports, we help individual authors write the stories that have been rattling around inside of them for some time. These stories can be at various stages of development. Ideas that need to be fully fleshed out with a few hours of coaching. A chapter or two that needs a second look for focus and clarity. Or even a manuscript of a book or an article that is ready for editing.

Reba's priority for authors is that they leave the reader with something poignant. Whether in the form of a book or an article, the story should not only inform the reader, but it should also touch him or her deeply and have a long‑lasting effect.
With a doctorate in sociology from Loyola University Chicago, Reba specializes in writing and developmental editing for story and narrative nonfiction. Her ability to write across a range of industries and genres can be attributed to her experiences in the private and public sectors. In the former, she consulted with retail and insurance companies on their data and writing needs. In the latter, she served as a sociology professor and researcher, where she focused on molding and shaping her students’ writing and critical thinking skills.
Over just the last five years, her 20 year‑old journal article (“The Forgotten Many”) has been downloaded more than 1,000 times. “A Crack in the Door,” a more recent one, received four Highly Influential Citations, meaning it had a significant impact in influencing other publications. She asserts that ensuring a story is relevant and connects with readers through changing times is what gives it shelf‑life.
In addition to articles, Reba also authored a book on the film industry which was published by Roman and Littlefield (For Entertainment Purposes Only?).
