Overview

I'm a freelance editor and a published author. I came to writing and editing from a background in academia as a professor of sociology. My copyediting services emphasize clarity, flow, reader-friendliness, and grammatical correctness. My developmental editing services address your manuscript's content, structure, and phrasing to bring your most important ideas to the forefront and make your argument as compelling as possible. I'm the author of You Can't Put God in a Box: Thoughtful Spirituality in a Rational Age (Oxford 2013).

Specialties: Academic writing, especially in the social sciences and religious studies. Trade nonfiction. Cultural and educational organizations. Religion, spirituality, personal growth, and the arts. Mission statements.
