Overview

Freelance copy editor and proofreader with 7+ years of experience, stellar client references, a spotless reliability record, and a BA in English/Lit who specializes in adult and YA romance in most sub-genres, LGBTQ adult and YA in any genre, science fiction, and dystopian/apocalyptic, although open to most other fiction genres.

I have worked as a freelance copy editor and proofreader for small-press publishing companies and a multitude of independent authors. I am currently head copy editor/proofreader for Clean Teen and Crimson Tree Publishing, and have been since they launched in 2015. I also frequently freelance for Tule Publishing.

Major projects include copy editing and proofreading for New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon best-selling authors such as Sawyer Bennett, Melissa McClone, Marquita Valentine, Juliette Poe, Jennifer Anne Davis, LB Gilbert, Jasmine Walt, Toni Aleo, Shelly Crane, and Kay Bratt—just to name a few—including books that have gone to film production.

Other major projects include numerous Amazon best-selling and award-winning authors through Clean Teen and Crimson Tree Publishing, including books that have gone to film production.

I offer copy/line editing, proofreading, blurb critique and editing, query letter editing, complete manuscript tense changes, and other combined packages at affordable prices. My website is set up to offer a comprehensive overview of my editing services, terms and conditions, and references.
