To write is human, to edit is divine. - S. King

Editing Work

As a copy and content editor, I can be the whole package. From grammar and spelling to fact-checking and formatting, I help authors review their plots, characters, and settings. Within my editing, I strive to maintain the author's unique voice. As an editor, I foster a close relationship with the author to work together in perfecting their story for publication. 

If you're looking for proofreading or a final read-through before publication, my attention to detail will help spot the smallest error. Or if you're in the beginning stages of publishing and need a manuscript critique, I will provide a written review to address the strengths and weaknesses of your upcoming publication.
