I believe in the power of your words. My recipe for a great novel, story, memoir, poem, or any creative work you wish to share with others … one part passion, one part talent, and one part editing. As a writer, I know how hard it is to publish—and I know the more polished the piece is, the better your chances are of getting published. I believe, no matter how good we are as writers, we always need a good editor.
I offer content review, I read for consistency and accuracy throughout, and I provide line-by-line grammatical editing. Having spent more than 22 years in graphic design, I am also adept at cover designs and inside layout of your book.
My background: I’ve been writing since I was 12 years old. With undergraduate and graduate degrees in the fields of creative writing and literature, I have learned much about editing and the importance of good feedback. Through on-the-job training and running my own business, I’ve been immersed in editing and graphic design. I have worked for many individuals, spent many years as a contractor with First Union (then “Wachovia” and now “Wells Fargo”), so I’m very at home with technical writing and editing as well.
As executive editor and publisher of moonShine review, and now co-editor of Kakalak, I continue to learn each day what it is to be a better editor—and how to provide feedback in an honest and kind manner.
For me, the process of getting there truly is as important as the final product. I am here to assist you. There is nothing more compelling—or vitalizing—to me than a satisfied client.
