I’m new to Elance but not new to publishing. With eighteen years’ experience in the publishing industry, I’ve handled a wide range of editing and proofreading projects, including multiple New York Times bestselling authors’ books, both fiction and nonfiction, various training materials, advertising campaigns, business and promotional materials, and more.
As a multi-published fiction author myself, I understand how important your words are to you and how much work you've put into getting them just so. I know firsthand the blood, sweat, and tears that likely went into your writing. I respect your writing for being just that—yours.
I earned a degree with distinction from the University of Kansas William Allen White School of Journalism. As the owner of Blue Otter Editing and as a line editor at Samhain Publishing, I’ve edited a wide range of fiction and nonfiction in numerous genres and sub-genres. I've published eleven novels of my own with Harlequin Enterprises, further honing my editing skills by learning from excellent content and line editors there. When it comes to editing and proofreading, I'm meticulous, deadline-driven, and, as those who know me best would say, verging on obsessive. Bottom line, I'd love to help you make your writing the best and most professional it can be.
