As a seasoned publishing professional and full-time freelancer, my skills include writing and rewriting, line/substantive and developmental editing, copyediting and proofreading, as well as manuscript evaluation. Adult fiction is my specialty.
I have been a full-time editorial freelancer since the summer of 2007, with a client list that includes two publishers, as well as individual writers, some of them self-published.
I routinely use the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word for the majority of my projects, and Adobe Reader for later stages when working with PDFs. The seventeenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style is my reference bible, and I keep a copy of The Elements of Style close at hand.
