I am an editor who is passionate about writing and helping others with their own writing, making it as perfect as the author wants it to be. I specialize in editing (and writing) historical fiction, young adult fiction, and mythology-based projects. I can edit, proofread, and help with research. I am the owner of an online editing company. With an Associates and Bachelors of Arts in English degrees (which focused on editing and publishing), I designed, edited, and published three arts journals through my university, as well as having an internship with the University Press of Mississippi.
I am currently finishing a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing through Southern New Hampshire University. As of August 2022, I will have my degree.
As a writer myself, I understand the importance of keeping the author’s writing style and spirit throughout editing—which is why I will work with you to the best of my ability to achieve that. In my own writing, I like to write about mythology, history, and fantasy, as well as Young Adult Fiction that handles real-life problems. When working with an author on their project, I want to keep your own voice and style--in a way that is concise, clear, informative, entertaining--and however you want your writing to come across. I like to communicate often, eagerly, and clearly when working with an author. I hope you want the same experience.
(Books in the Portfolio section are books I helped edit and format as part of a team of editors, which are currently published. There are many projects that I helped edit or solely edited that were personal projects for people and never published.)
