Overview

In my years of experience editing, I have worked on a wide range of projects in terms of both format and subject matter. With each new project, I advocate for the writer's work by emphasizing style rules and encouraging robust narrative while allowing the writer's voice to shine through. My work is fast, meticulous, and always aims to help you reach your goals. Whether you are preparing a manuscript for submission, ready to publish, or just hoping to bring your writing to the next level, I look forward to working with you on your next project!
