You will receive a polished version of your own creation. I will correct spelling, grammar, and sentence structure; I will also ensure your text flows well and is clear, concise, and reader-friendly. Your documents can be transmitted electronically to me and I will return the final draft with a "changes showing" version. Most recently, I have had the pleasure of assisting independent authors of adult and young adult fiction, as well as memoir writers and self-help gurus. I have over 30 years of experience in the communications and publishing industries. My expertise is in Stylistic Editing, Copy Editing, Proofreading, and Microsoft Word Typesetting. My claim to fame is that I'm respectful of your work and time, and that I meet all deadlines while ensuring a high standard for the finished product. See my website for more detail on how I can help refine and enhance your story so you'll be ready to share it with the world!
