After you complete the final draft of your manuscript, including all your revisions, a fresh pair of eyes is essential for catching the little typos or grammar errors, and even the occasional awkward sentence, any writer can miss in their own work.

With decades of experience as a writer and an editor, I can guide you to your best manuscript and maintain your voice throughout your work. Check out these testimonials to see what some of my authors have said about working with me.

Please contact me to discuss your editorial needs. After copyediting or proofreading a ten-page sample of your manuscript (at no charge), I will provide you with a reasonably priced quote for the complete job, which generally takes two to four weeks depending on the length of the manuscript and my current workload.

Here’s a sampling of the books I’ve worked on in various capacities. While I currently specialize in genre fiction, my editorial experience is wide ranging, as shown by these titles. Please check out my latest freelance work as well as my work back in the day for Zenith Press.
