Personal Message

Why hire an editor or proofreader? Sometimes even the most gifted writers need a fresh pair of eyes, some pre-pub polish, or coaching to hone their writing chops.

I enjoy assisting authors writing in a broad range of genres to creatively and critically examine their writing projects.
