My lengthy track record and numerous testimonials certainly speak to my skills and expertise, but if you need more proof—or just aren’t sure exactly what an editor does or how I can help improve your content—this page is for you!
For book-length projects (10,000 words or more), I offer a free sample edit on an excerpt from your book. This is the best way to get a sense of my approach to your writing and what it will look like when we’re done. Contact me if you’d like a free sample.

Editing: Website About Page
For this website About page, I edited for typos and other errors and also provided feedback on ways the copy could be improved, expanded, and clarified.
Editing: Code of Conduct for a Conference
With contributions and edits by several people, this document was in decent shape but had some inconsistencies in spelling and punctuation and some awkward phrasing. Cleaning up these issues made the message more clear and helped the conference organizer put forward a more professional image.
Editing: Book on Skin Care
After the author expanded and improved the text based on my initial manuscript feedback, we moved on to copyediting, where I helped improve the flow of the text, cleaned up inconsistencies, and fixed errors in grammar and punctuation.
Manuscript Feedback: Book on Photography
This client came to me for feedback on an in-progress manuscript. I asked questions and offered suggestions throughout to guide her efforts to expand, improve, and clarify the text. After she completed the manuscript, I provided copyediting services as well.
