I'm a freelance copyeditor of fiction and nonfiction based in Palm Bay, Florida. I work with independent authors, traditional publishers, and editing agencies all over the United States.
I specialize in the line-by-line editing that happens after your biography or novel or how-to book has been developed and written. I make sure participles aren't dangling, subjects and verbs all agree, and the meaning of each sentence is clear. I correct spelling, check facts, flag inconsistencies, eliminate wordiness and repetition . . . all the detailed stuff that is easily missed when you're focusing on the big picture.
I also write nonfiction for young adults (Sports: The Ultimate Teen Guide) and for grades 3 to 6 (one of my books even won an award!), so I know what it's like to have your words edited. Rest assured that you always have the final say in what is or isn't changed.
My goal is to help you give your readers an interesting, informative, and entertaining book that is free of errors and inconsistencies. Contact me about editing a 1,000-word sample for free to show you how I can help.
