Being an independent author myself, I know what you are going through, so I am more than happy to share my knowledge and give advice where I can. I am a friendly, open person, and all my feedback is constructive and instructive. I am here to help, to make editing a positive experience. I have a great respect for my authors and their work, and I expect high standards in my own work.
If you would like a sample copyedit of your manuscript, just send me your request with a sample file attached, and I will get back to you as soon as I can with a quote and a sample edit. I look forward to hearing from you.

I've been a freelance copyeditor on Reedsy since 2016, and in that time I have built rewarding relationships with many authors, helping them to put that polish on their projects that really makes them stand out to their readers. I have a great passion for young adult and adult fiction, especially fantasy and science fiction, but I don't work exclusively in those genres. I have worked on a range of manuscripts, from epic fantasy to popular science and everything in between. I am also fluent in all English standards (British, American, Canadian, Australian, etc.).
