Service Description

Seasoned writer whose publications include fiction, poetry and reviews, found in print and online. I have 9 years of experience in a variety of positions as book editor, proofreader, copywriter, and document designer. As a proofreader I have proficiency in both the AP and Chicago styles.

I provide editing and proofreading service for e-books and book-length manuscripts, web content, academic papers and business documents. My working method is to improve written content by assessing the written style of the text and fixing it up so that the writer's voice comes through. For professional web sites, I seize on keywords essential to attracting an audience and use direct, jargon-free language to expand on the provided content.
