Overview


"I also extend my most sincere thanks to Liz [R.], the professional copyeditor who carefully and systematically polished and standardized my otherwise rough ideas into something that is clean and far more presentable. Liz also added good humor and a positive tone to what otherwise can be a most difficult task for authors." -- Michael A. Steele, Oak Seed Dispersal: A Study in Plant-Animal Interactions

"Our copyeditor, Liz [R.], was simply superb in attention to myriad details of style, consistency, and clarity." -- Melvin L. Warren, Jr., and Brooks M. Burr, Freshwater Fishes of North America: Characidae to Poeciliidae, Volume 2

"Thanks, Liz [R.], for your meticulous efforts in helping a humble author feel like he has produced a good book. Liz, you taught me a lot, and I'm grateful." -- John Eric Goff, The Physics of Krav Maga

"We thank our copyeditor Liz [R.], devotee of the Oxford Comma and cat lover, for her kind, strong editing hand, and her marginal notes of encouragement." -- Daniel C. Abel and R. Dean Grubbs, Shark Biology and Conservation

I have worked on a wide range of projects, including university, college, and school textbooks and ancillaries; medical and science books and journals; digital products; technical and financial products; SEO web pages; blog posts; and nonfiction and fiction books. Many of these projects involved stylistic and substantive edits, proofreading, multiple authors and reviewers, complicated art programs, and comprehensive design and formatting elements.

I have vast experience with multiple style guides, creating extensive editorial style sheets, employing editorial/design/composition codes and proofreading mark-up, and implementing SEO best practices.

Exemplary editing and proofreading skills are my passion.

Asking questions is intrinsic to me.

I am extremely meticulous in my work; my attention to detail is paramount. I am reliable, meeting all my deadlines on target.

My heart sings as I work alongside my authors to bring their voice and vision to each page.
