Profile

I connect you with your reader by ensuring your message is clear, concise, accurate and compelling. Clients include indie and small-press authors, publishers, organizations and academics. Decades of publishing experience and rock-solid writing and design skills mean I can jump in at any stage of a project or manage the whole shebang. 

Whether you want to educate, entertain, persuade, promote or tell a riveting story, I help make the most of your words while preserving your voice. I love language, and I treat your words as carefully as I would my own. 

Clients: "[Joanne was] patient, insightful and supportive... painstaking in her attention to detail at every stage in the process." 

"Joanne's editing was a remarkably positive experience for me. From the outset, I sensed she was on my side and her edits were always thoughtful, considerate and supportive. After she was done her work, I realized I had a much improved manuscript – and still had my confidence as a writer."
