A full-time American freelance editor, and one of oDesk's most ... moresought after editors, with across the board 5-star ratings, I am skilled in US, Canadian, Australian, and UK English styles. (Yes, there really are differences.) Please note that I do not do translation work. I am a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) and the American Copy Editors Society (ACES), and have earned the Poynter Institute's ACES Certificate in Editing. I have structurally and technically edited, proofed, and indexed numerous books, fiction and nonfiction, for publishers around the world, and worked with authors to shape their work into publishable material, including doctoral theses and scientific/academic books and journal articles. (See my portfolio for links to a selection of these published works.) I most frequently use Chicago Manual of Style but can apply AP and other style guides if necessary. I'm currently working on a historical novel and two of my short stories were recognized by Writer's Digest Magazine from among more than 19,000 competitors. Please review the hundreds of 5-star-rated comments on my work product from previous oDesk clients and my topnotch proficiency test scores; see my website at http://www.yourbesteditor.com for more insight on how I approach my projects. Like many full-time editors, I work normal business hours, Monday to Friday, and am typically booked at least four to six weeks in advance—available slots go quickly and must generally be reserved ahead of time. Six to eight weeks is the normal period between contract and start time. Rush projects are limited to established repeat clients. Thank you. less

    Siobhan is an excellent editor. She really helped make my novel a success, catching many errors that other editors had missed. She looks at both the big and detailed picture as she reads. Highly recommended!
