Professional Freelance Book Editor

Platinum Editing Group
January, 2006 – Present (almost 13 years)

I am a professional freelance editor and writer (and reader!) based in Denver, Colorado, USA. I have been assisting individual book authors with their manuscripts for nine years and have worked with more than 185 clients in a variety of ways during my career.

I spent 14 years in the legal field, which led me to the editing career that I am so passionate about.

I have been an avid reader my entire life. I was the resident tomboy/bookworm when I was growing up. If I was not outside playing sports, I was inside reading a book. Sometimes I even read a book outside. . .while sitting up in a tree with an umbrella!

I am also a sports nut and love rooting for Denver sports teams, especially the Broncos. I may be found on Saturdays watching my three red-haired grandsons play football, soccer, or basketball.

I would love to help you take your project From Manuscript To Masterpiece!
