Kathleen Moore - Editor

Southern California

I edit and proofread technical, science, reference, and fiction. I bring a bit of grit and a lot of polish to your projects. You shine!

Overview

My love of science, words, and literature led to a career in technical and scientific writing, editing, and proofreading. Later I added fiction and reference work. I believe in a diagnostic and collaborative approach in editing projects to find flaws and opportunities, explain them, and leave you empowered to do your best work.
