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 My great joy is helping unpublished authors turn their dreams into reality.

Her estimates were reasonable and I feel as if I got the better end of the deal. She is knowledgeable about the Biblical content of my book and was able to steer my writing to a better place than I imagin...

Amy not only met but exceeded expectations! She gave clear edits and recommendations, even sharing extra Bible verses that would support the content in my Bible Study. Her attention to detail was amazing, even noting differences between versions of scripture as it related to the content in the manuscript. I highly recommend her, especially to anyone with a faith-based project!
