Aspiring and established authors alike will benefit from my editorial services. Editing will help your work, whether you plan to approach traditional publishers or intend to self-publish.
I edit novels, short stories, and other forms of creative writing while keeping in mind both the technical and artistic aspects of every work. Each writer has a unique voice, and I take careful consideration to ensure each is developed fully.
My non-fiction editorial services are available for business communications such as grants, proposals, reports, newsletters, press releases, and more. I have a background in business administration and experience in producing marketing materials.
