I have been editing and proofreading academic papers for peer review and for other students(10 years), direct mail for political lobbying(4 years), and historical romance & urban fantasy for a best-selling author.

I look for everything from punctuation and grammar, typos and misspellings to inconsistencies in the logic and story line. Let's work together to make your work the best it can be.
