Working With Me

Reading has always been my favorite thing to do! While other children were playing outside or with friends, I was hiding with my face stuck between the pages of a book. This love for written words helped me become an editor.

My primary goal when entering this field was to provide professional editing services for authors who may not have access to traditional editors due to cost. I believe each author deserves a personalized approach to editing, tailor made to the needs of their manuscript. The variety of services I provide allows authors to create customizable packages without breaking the bank.

I am committed to working closely with you, keeping you informed every step of the way to ensure you are completely satisfied with your final product. Writing a book is stressful enough, finding a good editor shouldn’t add to that. My mission is to preserve the authenticity of your voice while polishing your manuscript so that it represents you and your story with excellence.
