Hi, I'm Susan

Your dream of placing your beautiful book in the hands of readers . . . doesn't need to be a dream any longer.

I edit with friendship, honesty, and kindness, and I'm devoted to my clients until their project is complete. If we need to break a rule or two along the way—your unique style will always be my priority. I'm thrilled when a client says that their completed book is just the way they envisioned.

I'm a freelance editor and proofreader, member of the National League of American Pen Women, Inc., connecting creative women since 1897, a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading as well as ACES: The Society for Editing. I also co-edit and proofread with indie publisher, Janet Fix, and The Word Verve.

Home for me is a small farm with my hubby, a flock of chickens, a rather disagreeable goose, and a lovely Saddlebred horse. The joy these funny, farm animals bring to my life has inspired me to write children's books, and my first book for early readers will be coming soon in 2024.

…and a proofreading partner.
