Service Description

The services I offer are Editing, Copy Editing, and Proofreading for organization, flow, logic, ease of understanding, grammar, spelling, and typographical errors.

I have a variety of editing experience, including functioning as editor for my husbandís book of history, Verne Sankey, Americaís First Public Enemy, published in 2007, and a diverse range of other projects of varying lengths. My strengths include identification of illogical arguments, redundancy and verbosity.
