Service Description

I am a stickler for details, in spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. I love helping people put the finishing touch on their projects. Since I've done lots of writing on my own and I do book reviewing, I'm constantly exposed to documents in their final stages of completion and pride myself on finding last-minute "fixes" that will make the project shine. One of my favorite projects is when I can help an author get their manuscript in the best possible shape prior to its going out into the world. I also love doing research and re-writing material to give it a fresh look.
