A long-time writer myself, I understand the "nuts and bolts" of writing. I know structure, plot, characterization, POV, etc., and I can immediately see if, and exactly where, anything has gone astray. My many years as an editor and book translator enable me to solve problems preventing your book from being the best it can be, or to simply give it that extra polish every author desires.
My method is to read a book all the way through, twice if necessary, to understand the story, know the characters and hear the author's "voice." If structural problems exist, I work with the author to correct these, then I edit page by page -- making as few changes as possible -- to leave your book's style, intent and beauty intact.
p.s. I especially love science fiction!
