Which Type of Editing?
For 25 years I have assisted authors in preparing their scholarly writing, narrative nonfiction, and novels for publication by providing professional editing services.
I value clarity, brevity, distinctive voice, masterful sentence structuring, and the elegance that springs from simplicity.
Written a scholarly trade book? Telling a
creative nonfiction story?
Jump to the Nonfiction Editing page for options.
I use Track Changes in MS Word so that authors can review every single editing alteration I make while professionally editing the manuscript. I am well versed in the following styles:
American Anthropological Association
American Medical Association
American Psychological Association
Chicago Manual of Style
