Service Description

My job is twofold: first, I make absolutely sure that the work is technically correct. I check all the nuts and bolts, commas and apostrophes, ensuring that no reader will ever find an error and think, "Pfft! How careless!" Secondly, I identify areas that aren't as excellent as they could be, and find a more precise word or smoother turn of phrase, polishing your creation to a bright shine, all while retaining your unique writer's voice.

I specialize in copy editing and proofreading business documents and e-books of all kinds, but harbor a secret passion for helping YA fiction authors make their dreams into reality - nothing brings me greater satisfaction than using my skills to bring your manuscript as close to perfection as possible!

I have a background in business and finance, making me an excellent candidate for jobs requiring familiarity with relevant terminology and style. I also have extensive experience with general non-fiction, science fiction and fantasy, and personal development.

If you think I could be the Dr. Watson to your Sherlock - or just a dedicated, useful member of your project team - please get in touch and let's talk about your work! You can click the big green "Hire Me" button at the top of the page to invite me to submit a proposal for your current project, or just send me a message. I'll get back to you asap!
