I provide development editing, copyediting, and proofreading services for writers who are self-publishing or working with a publisher. I also provide editing services for publishing companies. My specialties include Christian living and curriculum, devotionals, African American history and culture, nursing education (LPN/LVN, BSN, and advanced practice), politics, and history. My digital publishing experience includes copyediting e-learning courseware for nursing instructors and students, which includes assessments, case studies, and simulations.
Because I have worked worked across several book publishing industries (Christian, trade, and STEM), I have a very in-depth knowledge of various practices in book publishing.
