Service Description

I have an ear for the rhythm and cadence of language, as well as a technical knowledge of sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation. I can polish your work and make you shine. My greatest satisfaction is in a word well chosen, a page well written, and a job well done.

I will provide that second set of eyes to proof read, copy edit, and style edit your writing. I will weave your source material into a resourceful and compelling story. I am a good listener, easy to get along with, and down-to-earth. I can be relied on to meet all deadlines promptly. I know we will make a great team!
