editing and writing services

I have more than twenty years of experience as a copy editor and proofreader, as well as a master’s degree in writing. I offer professionalism, good judgment, and a high degree of skill in preparing text for print or online publication.

I have profiles on LinkedIn, Upwork, and Fiverr. You can contact me directly with the form at the bottom of the page.

I hold bachelor’s degrees in both English literature and mathematics from Arizona State University (where I graduated with magna cum laude honors) and a master’s degree in creative writing from the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.

My extensive editing experience includes:

  • Copy editing and stylistic editing of college textbooks
  • Line editing fiction for both mass-market and literary publishers
  • Copy editing marketing materials for well-respected corporate organizations
  • Five years as publisher/managing editor of a literary press

I write regularly for the Globe-Miami Times, a local alternative newspaper with a quarterly print edition and online content. I recently wrote 90 percent of the copy for our local visitors guide. I also line edit JAVA, a monthly lifestyle magazine in Phoenix. I am a fiction writer and poet.

I am comfortable working with Chicago, APA, and AP styles.

I am reliable, conscientious, and sympathetic to the needs of writers, editors, and readers. I love the art and craft of the written word, and I enjoy working with clients who, like me, value clarity, accuracy, grace, and appropriateness in writing.
