Verified identity


I am a freelance editor, copy editor, proofreader, book marketer, ego stroker, and author handler. I have worked in publishing and media for over 12 years on a variety of projects—training books, cookbooks, memoirs, children's books, journals, and more.

Depending on what you need, I can offer a heavy or light level of editing, a thorough proofread, or a marketing plan that includes cover copy, web copy, social media strategy, and a digital marketing plan. I like to collaborate with the author as much as possible and give feedback that helps them get unstuck, smooths the rough edges, and drives the project forward.
