I love what I do and am very motivated to succeed, which is why I have been a successful professional freelance proofreader, editor and copy editor for 20 years. Because of my background in English skills, I am highly organized and detail-oriented in my work for the advertising industry, publishing industry, journalism and the field of education. My favorite work challenge was being hired to revitalize a poorly received and error-riddled university yearbook and newspaper. I trained the students on proofing for style, spelling, grammar and spelling and helped mold both into award-winning publications within a year. I conceived, developed and created the first proofreading/editing courses for a private university. In addition, I have edited hundreds of manuscripts—both fiction and nonfiction—mentored many writers into publication at major publishing houses (Simon & Schuster, Avon, Ballantine). I enjoy editing and have developed strong interpersonal skills through coaching students and dealing with administrators and my freelance clients. I’ve worked extensively with MS Word (Track Changes), as well as Adobe Acrobat—also the Chicago Manual of Style, AP, and MLA formats. I’ve done a great deal of online editing, copy editing and proofreading; I have an eagle eye for spotting mistakes—whether in syntax, word choice, typographics, spelling or grammar. As my own bestselling novel taught me, I can do just about anything I put my mind and passion to. •Genre Fiction •Nonfiction Books •Literary Fiction •Memoirs •Newspaper Articles •Short Fiction •College Papers •Marketing Pieces •Query Letters PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE Freelance Editor Self-employed 1985-Present • Editing, copy editing, proofreading, consulting, mentoring Guided several writers to publication Senior Editor A-1 Editing Service 2007-Present • Editing, copy editing, writing novels and narrative nonfiction Private Writing Coach Self Employed 2006-Present •Mentored many writers to publication • Substantive editing • Proofreading • Copy Editing • For dissertations, articles, class synopses • For fiction: characterization, plot, dialogue, pacing, copy editing, proofreading Creative Writing Teacher University of CA, Riverside Extension 1982-present Fiction Workshop (Works in Progress): fall 2006, spring & summer 2007, winter 2008 Journalism Professor California Baptist University: 9/2006-6/2007 • Newspaper & yearbook production: Guided to award-winning publications • Proofreading, grammar, punctuation • Editing • Writing Skills • Copy editing • Teaching Author Self-employed 1980-present • 8 published full length works of fiction Editor & Consultant Self-employed 1980-present • Edited manuscripts for publication • Mentored writers •Proficient in MS Word (track changes), Adobe Acrobat, PowerPoint, Excel, Chicago Manual of Style, MLA and AP style. •Home Office Includes: OSX, Fax, Copier, High Speed Internet, and Telephone.
