Verified identity


I'm an editor at a national magazine with 20 years of editing and proofreading experience. I began my career as a copy editor for Country Weekly magazine, and good grammar and style are in my blood. (I'm the daughter of two retired journalists, so it's also in my genes!) Since then I've helped several magazines at launch establish their copy editing guidelines, process and a stylebook. I'm an avid (and fast!) reader, and would love to help you make your book as polished as possible.
