Greetings! For twenty-five years I have been a professional editor and proofreader. In addition to six in-house years with a publisher, I have almost twenty years of freelance experience and have worked with companies and writers all over the world. I edit and proofread fiction (all genres, children's, YA, and adult) and nonfiction (educational materials, business books, and self-help books). I edit MS Word documents (using track changes), PDF files (using Adobe's comment/note function), and hard copies (using the old-fashioned red pen). If...

Thank you for viewing my profile. NOTE: Please see the last paragraph for a new service I offer.
For twenty-five years I have been editing and proofreading fiction and nonfiction, as well as articles, brochures, Web copy, and marketing materials. I am familiar with the major style manuals including the Chicago Manual and the AP guide. I also adapt quickly to individual house styles, so if you have any quirky grammar or spelling rules to follow, I'm the editor for you. Please contact me for references and/or for a copy of my resume.
My editorial experience runs the gamut and includes fiction (all genres, children's, YA, and adult) and nonfiction, including educational materials, business books, and self-help books. I use Track Changes to edit Word documents onscreen and Comments/Notes to edit PDF files onscreen. If required, I'll also edit on hard copy. Detail- and deadline-oriented editor and proofreader; easy to work with. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
New service for fiction and nonfiction book publishers and authors: If your book has been previously copy edited and proofed, I offer a $75 final look to catch any lingering grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors. When inviting me to bid, please mention this and I'll bid $75 (three-day turnaround) for books up to 100,000 words that have already been edited/proofed and are already very clean. I'm excited to offer this service for small publishers and indie authors who want to put out...
