Overview

The editor for your nonfiction project should be someone who can amplify your unique voice while helping you look your best. I would love to be that editor for you. I can assist with everything from basic proofreading to light developmental editing, and I currently have availability in Q2 and Q3, with about two weeks' lead time.

If you'd like to discuss your project, I can offer you a free consultation to discuss your needs and a test edit of a few pages. Your quote can be either project-based or hourly, as you prefer.

For my portfolio, testimonials, and services, see my website. Recommendations are available there or on LinkedIn. I am also a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association.
