About the Company

I have a boutique editing, writing and story consulting firm. I was a writing teacher for ten years and I have outstanding writing and editing skills. This is very much a relationship business for me, and I work very closely with my clients.

I specialize in developmental editing. In a developmental edit, I use Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature to write suggestions for improvements to specific parts of a book. I also write a five to ten-page critique of the book as a whole, including detailed suggestions for improvements. A developmental edit done before line editing or proofreading allows the author to save both time and money during the editing process.

I have extensive experience editing novels, screenplays and non fiction works, including business, self-help and inspirational books.
