Since 1990, I have worked as a freelance editor of scientific, technical, and medical subjects and nonfiction at all stages of production: developmental editing, copy editing, indexing, fact-checking, proofreading, and creating supplemental content. I have edited continuing medical education materials; nonfiction trade books (woodworking, gardening, home decorating, cooking, fitness, nutrition, children's fiction, arts and crafts, juvenile science, games, puzzles, young adult, photography, theater, crafts, fashion, and humor); course materials for scientific conferences; academic journal articles; ESL applied science manuscripts; doctoral dissertations; medical textbooks (e.g., cardiology); legal textbooks (law for managers, family law, real estate, criminal and civil law); and pharmaceutical industry advertising copy.
