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 — Creative Writing and four editing certificates, including a copyediting certificate from UC San Diego Extension.
I’m also a member of three professional organizations. I constantly attend webinars and conferences to stay current and informed.
I look forward to reading your story!
“Robin’s editorial work on my manuscript for Sunburst Woman was invaluable to me. She not only caught the errors I had made—and who doesn't make mistakes—but she also gave me honest and perceptive feedback that helped me make my work the best it could be. Her rates were fair and reasonable, and I got excellent value for my dollar. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an outstanding editor.”
— Jack Ontair, author of Sunburst Woman: And Other Poems About Intimacy and Ashes and Wine
“Robin LeeAnn 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. Perhaps, most importantly, she improved the presentation of my lead character, a troubled and complicated protagonist. Robin’s suggestions did wonders in making him more human and less annoying or confusing. 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, author of Letting the House Go.
“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, author and freelance writer
