Hello. I am a copy editor with twenty-five years’ experience in books, magazines, newspapers, journals, and the Internet.
I am fast, accurate, and have a passion for helping you find the perfect word, sentence, and paragraph to help communicate your ideas, without changing your voice. Whether it is your essay, fiction book, thesis paper, blog, article—just about any medium that requires the written word—I will make you sound clear and concise.
My editing skills are backed with extensive experience in substantive editing, writing, page layout and design, photography, and prepress. Further, I am proficient in the APA, MLA, AP, and the Chicago manuals of style; the Adobe Creative Suite, including InCopy CS4, and Quark Xpress; Macintosh and PC platforms; MS Word, Excel, and WordPerfect.
I take a deadline-oriented approach on projects, and I will often complete the work within twenty-four hours, depending on the number of pages and level of edit.
