I'm a freelance editor with a diverse background and an excellent work ethic, and I want to help you succeed as an author. I will be your biggest cheerleader and your toughest critic.

As an editor with experience in substantive editing and proofreading--from making sure your format meets with standards to simply proofing for pesky runaway ellipsis and tense flipping--I will give you professional quality with a personal touch.
