Overview

I am dedicated to help clients find impactful, effective presentation. Through proofreading or copy editing (light to heavy), I'm very thorough at analyzing text for the purpose of correcting grammar and improving conceptual clarity. Oriented on the collaboration, communicative with author and publisher, I can provide fine-tooth-comb detailing of your manuscript, whether it be fiction, non-fiction, and whatever the genre. Experienced with many aspects of electronic book-making, I look forward to enhancing your project in whichever manner requested. I also speak intermediate level of Spanish (Castilian), having lived in Mexico for over five consecutive years, and would be interested in translating any Spanish material into English. Si se buscan a convertir sus textos de español a inglés, estoy a su servicio.
