Service Description

I am a former English Teacher turned writer, copyeditor, and proofreader. I've been at it now for a little over 13 years and learning more and more as I go. I left teaching not because I was overworked for not enough compensation (though I was), but because I choose to be a stay-at-home mother. My husband encouraged me to do what I truly love to do and step out in faith. So I did...and I began to market myself as a freelance writer, copyeditor and proofreader.

I am well-versed in American English (and slang) and British English.

I've worked in the world of publishing for 13 years in many capacities. I've been an editorial assistant at a small business magazine. Working with this same magazine company, I moved up the ladder and became a featured writer and editor.
I then branched off on my own and became a freelance writer and editor. My experience is in many areas such as: nonfiction book editing for business, self-help, personal development, motivational guides, health and lifestyle, education/academic, eBooks, newsletters, and lots and lots of Christian books. I also edit and write a variety of articles and blog posts.


ALL OF MY WORK IS 100% ORIGINAL.

I DO NOT outsource my work to any other individual. I am meticulous and detailed with my work and my pay rate will reflect those characteristics. I meet all deadlines, unless otherwise discussed, and my work ethic is that of making the client's work a success, and therefore in turn my work will be a...
