I can give your work a final polish or provide big-picture feedback to move you toward a publishable product. I'm an ace at copy editing for clarity and making manuscripts consistent with particular style guides. As a one-time scholar and lecturer in gender, sexuality, and women's studies, I'm great at ensuring texts are inclusive and sensitive to broader cultural contexts. My relocation from the US to the UK has also given me a special knack for converting content written in British English for American audiences and vice versa. You can expect me to deliver timely edits in the format that is most convenient to you. I'm always ready to hop on call if you'd like to talk through my feedback.
Dynamo Limited (book packager)
I have freelanced for this UK-based creative agency for children's publishing and properties on a variety of projects published in the US and UK by National Geographic Kids, DK, Lonely Planet Kids, Kingfisher, and more. I have worked on everything from gaming guides and entertainment biographies to self-care activity books and environmental, STEM, historical, and geographical reference works.
I joined the founding exec team of this startup founded by a social entrepreneur in 2014, overseeing the development of the brand style guide and strategy for a custom content platform designed to help people discover and share the ideas and stories of remarkable women and girls. Since then, I have co-authored five books with the CEO. We've sold more than 100K copies of our themed collections of quotes by women and the fascinating, inspiring stories behind them.
