I work as an editor and proofreader for a religious academic publisher. My areas of expertise are in Christian living, theology, biography, and history. In addition to working with individual authors on single volumes, I have experience working on essay collections and multi-contributor volumes. My editing history is largely in the realm of Christian or religious work, but I'm happy to take on biographical, inspirational, and history projects in other areas as well!

I'll edit your project for accuracy, consistency, and clarity. I'll also make sure your book stays focused on your audience--I've worked with many writers who had great ideas that just needed to be pointed in the right direction. I can work with you to come up with deadlines that work for us both, and I can assure you I'll meet those deadlines.

As your editor, your voice and message will be my foremost concern. Let's make your project the best it can be!

Sarah was friendly, prompt and professional. She completed my project on time even though it was during a holiday week. Her editing has certainly improved the quality of my book as I prepare to publish it.
