Robin LeeAnn – Editor

Passionate freelance editor of award-winning indie novels. I want to help turn your book into something you've always dreamed of.


Hello! I'm Robin.

I started editing in 2016 as a nonfiction assistant editor for the North Texas Review. In 2019, I became a copyeditor and proofreader for Unsolicited Press. I have a BA in English with a concentration in creative writing and three editing certificates, including a copyediting certificate from UC San Diego Extension.

I’m also a member of four professional organizations. I constantly attend webinars and conferences to stay current and informed.

I look forward to reading your story!


“Robin is a smart, insightful, and creative literary editor. I really can’t thank her enough for her work on the manuscript of my latest novel. The text is clean, and the book moves smoothly in a form that I believe readers will find appealing. Robin helped clarify and intensify the emotional impact inherent in my story with editing that improved the way in which this emotional intensity is revealed. She got me out of my own way, in other words. So, I’m in her debt. Her careful and sophisticated editing has brought my little book to its highest level of quality and best form.”

— Robert Crooke


“Robin is without a doubt one of the best editors I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She not only catches grammatical errors, but she also pays attention to story structure and readability. I know exactly how long a piece of work will take her as she always communicates her ETA and meets that ETA. She is efficient, quick, and helpful, and she is worth every penny!”

— Danielle Harward


“Robin edits in a way that preserves the author’s vision and style, while enhancing the prose quality and clarity. I couldn’t ask for somebody better!”
