Freelance Editorial Services

Since I began editing professionally in 2009, I have edited a variety of genres, from mysteries to popular psychology to trail guides. Working in these disparate genres provided me with the ability to edit work in any style or voice, as you can see below.

In addition to editing manuscripts themselves, I have a wealth of experience writing and editing catalog copy, cover copy, and pitches, which are also services that I offer.
