Hi there!

Thanks for dropping by for a visit. I've heard it said that writing is one of the loneliest jobs in the world, but who else but a writer gets to hang out with so many imaginary friends? And real ones, too! So welcome to my author page. Please enjoy your visit, and come back soon.
Editing Services
At the moment I am not taking on any new editing projects, but if you'd like to drop me a line, please get in touch with me via the "CONTACT" tab.

I offer professional editing services for both technical and non-technical documentation. If you have a novel, a non-fiction book, a curriculum, website content, or a technical document you’d like edited, please get in touch with me via the “CONTACT” tab and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I provide both line editing (grammar, punctuation, word choice, etc.) and functional editing (structure, story flow, etc.) services in one package. ​It takes 60 to 80 hours total to edit a 50,000 word manuscript, which includes the first edit, the second edit, and a final touchup. I commit to work with you until you are completely satisfied with the final product and you are comfortable you have a publishable manuscript.

​Thanks for the opportunity to serve you!
