Overview

I have years of experience proofreading, editing, and copy writing at 3 major publishing houses in New York City. I have worked on New York Times bestsellers and have consulted with self-published authors so that they know they are getting the most out of their projects. Having worked at three prosperous literary agencies I am available for pitching consultations and query letter editing. I'm also a certified English as a second language teacher so I can provide feedback for non-native speakers looking to improve their English writing skills.
