I'm a published author and experienced copywriter and proofreader looking for freelance proofreading and copywriting/editing work.
My first book, Catch the Sparrow: A Search for a Sister and the Truth of her Murder, was published by Bloomsbury Publishing and Sphere UK in February 2022. I’ve also been published in the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Literary Hub, and other smaller publications and poetry journals. I have a wide reference for writing techniques and themes I can bring to your client's work.
I am also a veteran English teacher of 22 years in the NYCDOE, where I have taught at both the middle and high school levels. In addition, I was an adjunct professor of English Composition at the Fashion Institute of Technology for several years before beginning to focus on my own writing.
I am well-versed in MLA, APA, and Chicago Style formats, and can quickly learn any others.
Additionally, my teaching career requires precise time management, the ability to work under extreme pressure, flexibility, and accountability—all skills I know will help as I begin to branch out into the world of copy editing, proofreading, and copywriting.
