Freelance Editor

March, 2015 – Present (about 6 years)


Copy editor, books

Reworking/Refreshing book descriptions, blurbs

My experience encompasses many facets of the communications world, but editing is my passion. I draw on my experience as a magazine editor and writer, newspaper reporter, marketing communications executive, and book editor to help my clients’ writing shine.

I enjoy working on all kinds of projects, large and small. So whether it’s editing an action-adventure novel or refreshing a back cover description, I apply my attention to detail and creativity to every job. I am proficient using The Chicago Manual of Style.

Authors, we can start with a free sample edit of your manuscript.
