I have 18 years of experience, both on staff and as a freelancer, as a copy editor and production editor, and occasional line editor and developmental editor, concentrating on narrative and journalistic nonfiction, memoir, self-help, politics, history, and sports.
I believe editing is about finding and enhancing your unique voice. I will accentuate the natural personality in your writing style while making sure your message is coherent and you sound authoritative, engaging, and relatable to your readers. I'll also ensure that your grammar, punctuation, spelling, and syntax are flawless, so no one will wonder whether you were awake during English class.
