"She did a beautiful job and executed it perfectly." ... "Her language skills and professionalism are outstanding" ... "I recommend her highly as she goes over and beyond to please."
I started reading when I was three years old, and I've been in love with the written word ever since. Nowadays, I'm a professional editor, publisher, copy editor and writer, with over 15 years of experience, and now own and operate a small publishing house in California. I've worked in fiction, nonfiction, insurance editing and medical editing fields, and know everything there is to know about the written language. I can guarantee you a quick, professional job, with the creativity and attention to detail you need in the editing world. Your paper, manuscript, copy or idea will come to fruition when and how you want it to, and I always guarantee a free revision. I thrive on deadlines and I always aim to please.
I am a seasoned editor, specializing in all levels of editing for authors of both fiction and nonfiction. For some authors, I may also offer limited representation to literary agencies, or guidance on the submission process. I have over 15 years of experience in editing and publishing, with direct contacts in the publishing industry.

Terms differ depending on services requested. Copy edit and proof can start as low as $1/page. Developmental editing or ghostwriting runs to $4 or $5/page. I'm always happy to work with a client on terms, and tailor a price to their particular needs and budget. Turnaround is established with client based on work needed, length of the project, and the client's own time schedule. We can obviously make no guarantees regarding sale of a project after editing is completed, but can offer guidance in regard to self-publishing or pitching to agents. Thirty days of limited coverage is provided after completion of the project.
