I started reading at the age of three, and started pointing out mistakes shortly after. Eventually, I realized that I could turn my love of polishing other people’s writing into a career. I have provided copy editing and proofreading services to a number of publishers, including Wiley, ECW Press, and House of Anansi. I have worked on textbooks, novels, nonfiction, and academic publications, and have enjoyed helping authors in each of these fields reach their full potential, and I'd love to do the same for you. I love working on books where authors have a distinct voice, and I like to keep that voice present first and foremost.
I have an eagle eye and can offer a quick turnaround for your projects, while still making sure they are as polished as possible. Always available for a more hands on approach if you prefer frequent check-ins, or I can work on your project with minimal questions if you'd rather just get everything back in one big chunk.
I primarily provide copy editing and proofreading services. As a copy editor, I ensure copy is consistent, creating or working with existing style sheets. I fact check and offer suggestions to enhance readability and clarity in manuscripts. As a proofreader, I correct grammar and spelling, and flag typesetting issues that may cause confusion for readers. I make sure to retain as much of the author's style as possible; my job is to improve the author's text, so that their books can resonate better with their readers.
Key Porter Books
I was responsible for several tasks, including: proofreading manuscripts and printer proofs; copy editing manuscripts; coordinating award submissions for Key Porter titles; applying for CIP information for new titles; sitting in on production and editorial meetings to stay up-to-date on the schedule for the upcoming season; reviewing submissions and making recommendations for acceptance or rejection.
