Nicole Ayers - Editor

Editor, Reader, Writer, Word Lover. Let's work together to make sure your manuscript says exactly what you want it to.

Overview

While I've held many jobs in my life, including stints as a Peanut Shack employee, server, camp counselor, telemarketer, print shop lackey, bartender, and teacher, editing is my favorite because I can combine my love of reading with the fun of wordplay.
