Service Description

I provide editing, writing, copy editing, ghostwriting, story consultant, and research services. I've written and edited novels, screenplays, memoirs, political essays, marketing reports, grant proposals, resumes, and medical/biomedical research. I've worked as an interviewer and investigative journalist. My goal is to help create the product that you envision in a timely fashion. I consider myself a flexible, innovative, and insightful person who can assist in shaping your project into your expectation.

My aim as an editor is to make the writer's work as vivid and compelling as possible while maintaining its unique voice and tone. To this end, I edit for structure, clarity, flow, plausibility, consistency of voice, transitions, character development, etc., as well as assuring that grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. are correct.

I have years of experience editing and coaching writers for whom English isn't their native language.

As a writer and ghostwriter, I take direction from the client and we work together to create your story.
