    Writer and editor

    United States - Portfolio: 4

    Versatile writer and editor. Writing is my first love and something I have a natural aptitude for, though I am always working on improving my craft and honing my skills. I truly enjoy helping people find the best way to tell their stories, whether it's as a ghostwriter or an editor. My ghostwriting projects have included novels, short story collections, book-length nonfiction, articles, and educational reading passages. I love the challenge of taking someone else's ideas and crafting them into a compelling and readable narrative. I am firmly committed to providing affordable and quality editing services. Writing a book is such a big achievement, yet for many people (myself included!) it is only the beginning on the road to publication. It is often difficult to clearly "see" your own work after a while, which is when the help of a seasoned editor will be indispensable. I've done everything from deep line editing to proofreading and am a voracious reader, an intuitive editor, and a meticulous proofreader. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to put their best work out there.
