I've been a successful freelancer for the past 11 years and have also worked for educational publishers, print shops, and daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly publications. I've written more than 150 children's books for educational publishers. I've edited a New York Times best-selling finance book, numerous books for prominent psychologists, and two books for a prominent professional coach. After taking Benchmark Education Company's copyediting test, the managing editor wrote: "You did fantastic on the test! In fact, yours was the best test I've seen in the two years I've given it." Another editor at Benchmark wrote: "You are a wonderful writer, a quick study, organized, and so on top of schedules that it is a pleasure working with you!" Service Description: I offer expert writing, copy editing, and proofreading services as well as graphic design/layout in InDesign. PLEASE NOTE: I *don't* write articles, web content, or marketing copy. WRITING: I've written more than 150 leveled children's books as well as more than one hundred reading passages for educational publishers such as Wright Group/McGraw-Hill, Benchmark Education Company, Trillium Publishing, Learning A-Z, and Evan-Moor. My strong suits include life science, earth science, geography, the human body, art, music, history, biography, and cultures around the world. I have a passion for life science topics and have a knack for rephrasing scientific content for young readers. NONFICTION COPY EDITING AND PROOFREADING: I tighten text and smooth it out, covering sentence structure and flow, voice, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, consistent verb tenses, parallel construction, correct word choices (e.g., "that" vs. "which"), and more. I can copyedit in Word or WordPress. I'm also an expert at reviewing layouts before publication. GRAPHICS: I'm a whiz at creating and proofing layouts for consistency and visual appeal. I can work in InDesign CS4 or CS5.5. Here are additional testimonials from satisfied clients: "I've worked for major New York book publishers and top-tier university presses, and Kira is one of the best copy editors I've encountered. She is an editor's dream: sharp, analytical, logical, detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with. I rest easier knowing that she's on the case whenever she tackles one of my projects." -- John Rousselle, Editor, Reading A-Z "Best proofreader/editor I have ever worked with, and I've worked with many.

Kira has an eye for detail like no other editor I've hired. I've worked with at least 7 in the last few years, and she's been the most thorough and professional one. I highly recommend her." -- Kyle Thompson, Big Fish Consulting "Kira has an incredibly sharp eye for language and layouts. She capitalizes on her extensive publishing experience and also consults appropriate reference tools to support her copyediting and proofing decisions.

Kira has been a huge part of that success. Her eye for design and her project management know-how have helped both our company and our customers enjoy a successful year.
