Work experience

Freelance Editor

Self-Employed

January, 2012 – Present (almost 5 years)

I have been working as a Freelance Editor for more than four years. I enjoy a close working relationship with my authors and particularly enjoy their continued patronage. Some of the books I have edited have gone on to win awards, including the 2013 Readers' Favorite Silver Medal winner in the YA Coming of Age category, and 2014 Winner of RomCon's Readers' Crown Award - Best Paranormal Romance, but I entirely credit the brilliance of the authors I work with for their success. I pride myself on making my authors' work as polished and perfected as possible.
