Overview

Although I am an excellent writer, it's editing that rings my bell. I love helping authors by removing distractions, and providing insight into small tweaks that can bring big clarity. With 30 years of experience as a proofreader and editor, and over 20 as a technical writer in many industries, I live to make content shine.
