I am a professional, deadline-oriented freelance editor ready to work with you. Comfortable with Chicago and quick to learn house style, I have experience in textbooks and educational children’s books, fiction including romance, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and YA, and non-fiction including scholarly, general interest, and memoir. I have worked with publishing houses large and small, trade and academic, as well as many individual authors. I believe in the importance of preserving an author’s voice while bringing out their best writing, working behind the scenes to make an author’s book shine and maintaining a strong relationship between the author and agent or publisher.
A graduate of Ryerson University’s publishing program, my coursework included Substantive and Stylistic Editing; Copy Editing for Books, Journals, and Reports; Proofreading for Books, Journals, and Reports; Indexing for Books, Journals, and Reports; Trade Books: Fiction; Editing Books for Children and Teens; Scholarly and Reference Publishing; and Government Reports.
