Service Description

Proofreading: My specialty is spotting those obscure typos, usage errors, punctuation errors, etc. that others don't seem to notice. I find errors in virtually 100% of the published books that I read. Let me give your book that last read-through before publishing to make SURE you are error free! I can also proofread your academic papers, technical writing, letters, and blogs.

Editing: I can edit your content, check your facts, and clean up your writing. You’ve done the hard work and are sick of looking at it…hire me to be that fresh set of eyes! Be assured, I will help you with the general flow of your story or other writing, and get you on your way.

Writing: I am experienced with many types of writing, including article writing, technical writing, and academic writing. Most of my creative writing is in the Christian nonfiction genre. However, I love doing research, learning about new things, then writing about them!

Excel projects: I have been a power user of Excel for 20+ years. In Excel, I can enter your data, design your spreadsheet, summarize your data in tables and charts, and give your spreadsheet a clean, professional look. I've also used Excel for years to create custom fillable forms, price lists, and just about anything else you can think of!
