I am an Editing Professional with over five years of experience editing and proofing fiction novels, self-help books, short stories, scholarly essays, business proposals, websites, and many more. Using the Bachelor of Arts Degree that I earned from Roosevelt University, I specialize in taking copy and transforming it into a more clear and persuasive document than the original, one that the reader is excited to read and the writer is proud to have written.
In my freelance work, I have had the pleasure to edit a variety of novels, review different fiction works and give pre-edit summaries, help ESL authors bring their works to life in English, and brainstorm marketing ideas with self-publishers. By giving competent and sincerely helpful words of advice without being condescending or changing the author’s voice or intended message, I have been able to help authors transform their manuscripts into works that are engaging and thought provoking. While suggesting ways to edit and even rewriting different passages, I encourage writers and show them different writing strategies, making their work stronger from a reader's standpoint.
