Overview

I write SciFi, Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Middle-grade, and YA. Those are also the genres I prefer to review, but I may be open to others. Ever since receiving my MFA in Writing Popular Fiction I've become more aware of typos not caught before books go to print. I'd like to help you find Those issues before you go to print. I offer proofreading, copyediting, or developmental editing.
