Profile

I am a freelance copy editor with experience in fantasy fiction.  I work alongside the author ensuring their prose is clear and concise while focusing on spelling, grammar and capitalization, word usage and repetition, dialogue tags and point of view tense and descriptive inconsistencies.  I also proofread for spelling and style, layout and typography, confusing or awkward page and word breaks, and incorrect captioning on any illustrations and page numbers in the contents.  Through LinkedIn Learning I have completed an editing course and I am enrolled in a content editing course through Conestoga College.

My passion for editing began when I copyedited an award-winning roleplaying compendium for Trilemma Adventures, which won an ENnie award for Best Cartography (gold) and Best Adventure (silver) at Gen Con in 2020.  I thoroughly enjoyed working on this 176-page compendium knowing that I contributed to the success of the project.  Perfectionism and attention to detail have always been a part of who I am, thus my priority is to guarantee that the content is well polished by leaving no stone unturned.  Please feel free to send me a message.  I would be happy to work with you on your project.
