Amy Barham – Editor

I work in Christian publishing in several categories including study Bibles, inspirational stories, devotionals, and ministry resources.


I have been a professional editor in Christian publishing since 2006. I have worked for Thomas Nelson, Zondervan, Lifeway, and many others. With experience in several genres, including study Bibles, Bible studies, devotionals, memoirs, inspirational stories, pastoral resources, and Bible history and culture, I can readily adapt to a writer's style and needs.

I have worked extensively with self-publishing authors, and I know how to ensure a writer's work is the best it can be while maintaining their unique voice and vision. I deeply respect the writing process and lead with kindness while working with authors to produce a published work they can be proud of. My great joy is helping unpublished authors turn their dreams into reality.

Amy even went the extra mile by offering a refund for a portion of her fee due to the issues at project end. After reviewing her work, I would highly recommend Amy to other authors. Not only d...

I'm in awe of Amy and her work here. Her understanding and control of the English language was valued as much as her excellent theological observations which have helped throughout the book. I'm extremely grateful to her, and would recommend her as a professional without hesitation.
