I am a freelance editor and work as a Production Editor for an independent fiction writer with several best-selling, published books. I have experience editing science fiction and fantasy, mystery/thriller, and young adult novels.
Over the past 13 years, I have worked with indie authors, college professors, and publishers. I have an extensive background in nonfiction in education and the social sciences.
Previous work includes copyediting and proofreading a nonfiction published book, assisting doctoral students with organizing and editing their dissertations, and critiquing articles for a professional journal.
I am also an Advance Reader for several independent authors.
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am well versed in the social sciences, education, and psychology genres. I have won awards in essay-writing contests at a local university. I am currently enrolled in the University of California Berkeley Professional Sequence in Editing certification program and have completed several editing/grammar certificate programs and courses in developmental editing and copyediting.
I am committed to providing quality services.
