Claudia Dillaire – Editor

I live for a challenge and consume research for fun. Nonfiction has been my focus, though I now write fiction. Let me show you my talents.


I am not only a tested proofreader and copy editor, I am also a published author of both fiction and nonfiction. My favourite tools are the Chicago Manual of Style, the Oxford Unabridged Dictionary, and a red pencil. I also use the Flip Dictionary to add depth to any work.

My strengths include an obsessive attention to detail, the ability to ferret out facts and research, never missing a deadline, and rising to the challenge of rush jobs. I am comfortable with both American and British English spellings. I have assisted editing a work written by a foreign-language writer, for both syntax and grammar.

My passion is language, both the written and spoken word, and my avocation is to make every work to best it can be.
