About Shaundale

As a result of my award-winning writing and attention to detail, people around the globe have found the courage to confidently share their stories. I provide premier content development and editing services that help others to use their voice and find flow. Who do you know with a story to tell that I can help them write?

What I can do for you

With 35+ years of writing experience, I am finally living my dream as an international award-winning and bestselling author. I get to write, write, and write some more! Like a midwife to your birthing experience, it is my goal as a developmental editor to help you deliver your best work and to present your best self. I’ve been a writer since I was 12. Now, I breathe new life into others’ projects.

As a professional editor of eight years, I do three times the work so you don’t have to by:

  1. Performing both in-line substantive and developmental editing
  2. Providing a multi-page editorial review covering global issues, such as content, structure, narrative flow, voice, tone, and readability
  3. Polishing all copies with moderate line editing (via electronic tracked changes) to revise or remove inconsistent and repetitive phrasing, inappropriate verb tense, and/or incorrect word choices, spelling and usage (diction), grammar, subject-verb agreement, and transitional phrases, as well as consistency, depth, syntax, clarity, flow, style, and pacing


Specialties include:

  • Content development
  • Readability
  • Narrative flow
  • Structure & Style
  • Tone & Voice
