I specialize in copyediting (line editing) and proofreading works of nonfiction (and some nonfiction) including books, newsletters, articles, white papers, reports, textbooks, testing materials, corporate communications, and web content.

My extensive knowledge of teaching and copyediting English grammar, syntax, and idioms ensures your message is communicated clearly and concisely to your audience.

Experience with a variety of house styles, the Chicago Manual of Style, the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), and The Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation (for legal documents).
