Overview

I am a Minnesota-based freelance editor working exclusively with novel-length fiction. I have experience with both traditional and self-published authors across all genres, handling a dark psychological thriller as easily as a YA Christian romance. I offer both basic proofreading and full developmental editing services. I love what I do, and I understand that most authors are not rolling in cash. I need to make enough money to support myself, but I don't expect you to sign huge checks over to me, either.

Editor

Freelance
February, 2011 – Present (over 7 years)

I have worked with numerous authors to help polish their books for publication. About 1/4 of my authors are traditionally published, one with quite successful sales. The majority of my clients are self-published. Some are repeat clients who have written several books, some are new and inexperienced authors. I really enjoy the process of helping all of them bring their best work to the public.
