Working with authors (individuals and companies) to reach your target audience is a pleasure. I value the importance of maintaining the author’s tone and voice to achieve your goals. My primary goal is to give you the competitive edge by elevating your writing from good to great. As an editor and writer, I bring twenty years of experience to the table with a background in fine arts and nursing – an interesting combination that thrives on detail, creativity, and personal interaction.
A strong book editor and writer with a command of the English language, I provide editing and writing services from basic proofreading to substantive and developmental editing for fiction, non-fiction, and creative non-fiction. With a penchant for detail, I find that one mistake others miss when editing. The Chicago Manual is my touchstone for editing manuscripts, and I also work comfortably with AP style.
