For over 10 years I was a series editor for Heinemann/Greenwood Publishers, where I acquired and issued contracts to authors and did content editing on the Young Adult Novels in the Classroom Series.
In addition, I served for 5 years as editor of the national academic publication, English Journal, where I selected and edited all articles and columns, managed an office, and oversaw two editorial assistants.
I am a developmental and content editor, as well as a general proofreader and editor for grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, cohesion, and clarity in your documents. You need an editor/proofreader you can rely on, and my work ethic and extensive experience editing an academic journal and book series will serve you well. Give me a reasonable deadline, and you can be sure I will adhere to it, with attention to quality and accuracy in your work as my first concern. My editing experience qualifies me to review, proofread, and edit book manuscripts, dissertations, masters theses, CV's, proposals, letters, and reports, as well as articles intended for publication in magazines and journals. My teaching and writing experience provides professional expertise in the literary elements of voice, tone, structure, characterization, and plot development in works of both fiction and nonfiction.
