I am a copyeditor and proofreader with more than twenty years of experience. Although I specialize in children’s and young adult fiction and nonfiction books, I have also worked on fiction and nonfiction titles for adults. I am a member of the Advisory Council of Conscious Style Guide and a past member of the Board of Directors of ACES: The Society for Editing. Visit my About Me page to learn more.

My clients are primarily publishers and independent authors, who hire me to get their full-length book manuscripts ready for publication. My favorite genres are mystery, fantasy and science fiction, and contemporary fiction, but I enjoy variety and will tackle any subject. Visit my Services page for more about what I can offer you.

Among the books I’ve copyedited are three Caldecott Medal winners, two National Book Award finalists, a Newbery Honor Book, a Printz Honor Book, a Sibert Honor Book, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book, four Drue Heinz Literature Prize winners, and numerous New York Times bestsellers. Visit my Portfolio page for a select list of titles I’ve worked on.
