Profile

My strength is in style and copy editing. I LOVE this work. I generally offer quick turn-around on short projects (business documents, marketing materials, website copy, etc.), especially if I've been given a heads-up about when I will receive them.

For full-length manuscripts (fiction and non-fiction), I am passionate about improving the logic, flow, dialogue, clarity and style of the work. I also make recommendations on structure (character development and plot for fiction; chapter organization for non-fiction) when it makes sense to do so. I want your work to shine. I want people to want to read it.

I've been editing since 2008, and my favourite projects to work on are those that involve some level of raising human consciousness.
