I'm an editor with many skills, fashioned over more than two decades, but my abiding talent is helping writers find their voices--and their characters' voices. People often have a lot to say; they just having trouble getting it out properly, and that's where I come in. Grammar and spelling, a copyeditor's two most important tools, come naturally to me, and proofreading is more a hobby than a job. Incurable curiosity spurs me to learn constantly, expanding my vast (and mostly useless) general knowledge. This helps me to spot even the smallest mistake or inconsistency, and suits me to edit just about anything that needs reading.
