    I specialize in copy editing and proofreading for books of speculative fiction and creative or business nonfiction. I work directly with independent authors, editorial companies, and publishing companies, and I am an expert in Chicago Manual of Style and the Christian Writers' Manual of Style. I've been a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association since 2017, and I'm passionate about helping you make your writing shine! Working with me means you gain an advocate. You will receive excellent editing services AND the resources you need to improve your books. Interests Include: Business - Christian fiction - Fantasy - General fiction - History - Language - Lifestyle - Memoir - Psychology - Short story collections - Science fiction - Sweet romance - Young adult fiction Editing Speed (250-word page): Basic copy edits - 8 to 11 pages per hour. Heavy copy edits - 3 to 6 pages per hour. Proofreads - 10 to 16 pages per hour. Complex formatting or executing of changes may take me longer. My Process: 1. You'll fill out an author questionnaire and supply your manuscript so that we can get a feel for the scope of what editorial services your project needs. 2. I"ll provide you with a project quote and turnaround timeline. 3. Once we agree on those terms, we'll start an Upwork contract and I'll provide you with our terms of agreement as a PDF. You'll accept and fund the milestones. 4. Then your project begins! You'll receive regular updates from me via Upwork messages. 5. Once the edit is complete, I'll return all edited materials and other agreed-upon deliverables to you. You'll have a chance to review the edit with one round of questions and answers and minor additional changes, if necessary. 6. Then you approve the milestone(s), and your project is complete!

    After graduating from Trinity University with a degree in English, I moved to New York City to attend the NYU Summer Publishing Institute. I worked in the publishing industry for nearly three years before deciding to pursue a career in law. I'm currently attending the University of Georgia School of Law. Reading and writing has always been my number one passion in life. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to edit short stories, applications, and self-published works for friends and family while also working on my own creative writing.
