Profile

My education and experience as a librarian led me to an editing career 20 years ago. Detail-oriented and  well-organized, I can work in either French or English. As well as copy editing, proofreading and research, I have done extensive permissions work for both print and visual material. Occasionally I will do small translation projects and a few years ago I translated a fan book on the rock group "Tokio Hotel" from French to English (Tokio Hotel Fever). I have assisted with anthologies, novels, catalogues, museum copy, textbooks, court reports, online information and memoirs, working for publishers or independent authors.

I review novels, books of poetry, non-fiction... at http://bookdiscovery-jeanne.blogspot.com.
