I read with an eye to the details of grammar and style but also give constructive support as the author brings ideas and characters to life.

Overview

Reviews (7)

With over twenty-five years of experience editing for traditional publishers and individual authors, I bring
*Sensitivity to the voice and creative process of the fiction writer
*A broad knowledge base to support the academic writer
*Attention to the special needs of writers whose first language is not English
*Commitment to grammatical, stylistic, and factual accuracy
*Strong technical command of the English language
*Extensive experience with the Chicago Manual of Style and APA, MLA, and Associated Press styles

I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and the American Copy Editors Society.

I have both an A.B. and an M.A. in English and a certificate in editing from NYU. I also attended Trinity College, Oxford University to study Paleography (manuscripts and handwriting). As a freelancer for ETS, I’ve written questions for standardized tests such as the GRE and SAT subject tests. I began my editing career working on study guides for these and other academic tests and coauthored the AP English Language and Composition study guide.

Moon Crossed was my first collaboration with Luann and I'm going to use her services for all of my books going forward. Luann is very professional. Her notes were to the point but kind, and I can't tell you how many times I read one of her edit notes and thought, "Oh my gosh, I'm so glad she caught that. Whew!"

Luann is professional and absolutely delightful to work with. She is working on my urban fantasy series and each time I work with her, I get messages from my beta readers complimenting on the improvements with the story after her edits. I've worked with a lot of editors and I haven't had one who pays as close attention to detail as Luann. I plan to continue to work with her.

she gave me good input and suggestions in areas that needed more detail. I would work with her again when the time comes.

Luann was the perfect editor to help me get The Assumption Code at its best. I treasure her encouragement and positive direction she gave me. She's the best ever!
