With over 10 years of experience in commercial and trade publishing, I use my wide variety of editorial skills as a freelance editor on both fiction and non-fiction projects. I have worked on everything from cozy mysteries, thrillers, historical fiction, and women's fiction, to true crime, pop culture, and academic textbooks. Regardless of the genre, what is most important is my relationship with the author. I pride myself on strong working relationships with all of my authors and on not changing the author's voice. It's your book, I'm just here to make it better. And that's a collaborative process. And a fun one, at that. I will help you fine tune your work until it's exactly how you want it, through an engaging (and hopefully fun) editorial process.
