Overview

I've been an editor at a publishing house for over 11 years. My nickname is "Eagle Eye" because of my attention to detail. My specialty includes proofreading, line editing, and copy editing. Give me a sentence with grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors, and I'll make it perfect and professional. I'm experienced in fact-checking and evaluating timeline and character consistency. In the past I've developed and edited children's products and curriculum, but am open to working on fiction and non-fiction titles. My expertise lies in creating a style guide and following it to make sure formatting and usage is consistent and precise.
