I provide developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading services for authors. I completed a developmental edit for A Series of Small Maneuvers by Eliot Treichel, which debuted with a starred review in Publisher's Weekly and earned high praise from the Huffington Post. This YA novel won a Readers Choice Award at the Oregon Book Awards and a Reading the West Award.
