Freelance Editor

June, 2016 – Present (almost 3 years)

In the last three years, I have been providing editing services to independent authors and cultivating ongoing relationships with several authors, as well as becoming a trusted service provider to Bolide Publishing Ltd.

Aside from the books in my portfolio, two more are due to be published this year: Broken Empire: Renegades by E. A. Copen, and Starbound by S. E. Anderson (August). I also self-edited my first book Charon Unguarded which was first published in January 2018 (re-released in November 2018).
