I have enjoyed working with authors and editing their texts since 1982—a span of 38 years and counting.
I had the good fortune to spend 15 years writing and editing in Japan and working with many ESL writers.
Now in the United States, I have worked on behalf of every type of writer: academic, scientific, finance, student, journalist, creative writer, and others.
For all projects, I follow my clients’ specifications and meet all deadlines. I return an edited copy with all changes clearly indicated (i.e., tracked changes in red) and provide numerous comments and suggestions. I also follow up promptly on all e-mail messages to resolve any pending issues. My availability is seven days a week to meet my clients' needs. I live in the Eastern Time Zone (North Carolina) and typically start my day at 6:00 a.m. and then edit until the day's work is done. I look forward to working with you and thank you for entrusting your documents to me.
I am an editor with over 25 years' experience with copyediting books, magazines, newspapers, thesis papers, journals, and the Internet. I am fast, accurate, and have a passion for helping you find the perfect word, sentence, and paragraph to help communicate your ideas, without changing your voice. Whether it is your essay, fiction book, thesis paper, blog, article -- just about any medium that requires the written word -- I will make you sound clear and concise. My editing skills are backed with extensive experience in substantive and developmental editing, writing, page layout and design, photography, and prepress. Further, I am familiar with APA, MLA, AP, AIP, and the Chicago manuals of style.
