Do you want a job well done, delivered on-time, and at a reasonable price? Add to that, hands-on, personalized, and professional service and you’ve ensured value for the money spent.

 I offer proofreading, copy-editing, stylistic editing, and substantive editing for a variety of manuscript types and genres, including trade fiction and non-fiction, medical reviews, corporate reports, and newsletters.  Since entering the publishing field in 2014, I have edited, copy-edited, and proofread material for non-profits, websites, small business, medical publications, and self-published authors.

With an academic background in publishing, botany, ecology, sociology, and aviation, and real-world work experience in both for-profit and not-for-profit sectors, climate change action plan development/implementation, wilderness/land-based activities (operating a remote lodge/hunting/fishing camp, professional trapper), and as a private fixed-wing/commercial helicopter pilot,  the range of subjects I am familiar with is rather broad.

Other services offered include project management, back-of-the book indexing, fact-checking, and print/ebook layout and design services.

Contact me to discuss your project.
