From good to great.


"Your suggestions and corrections transformed my novel. Your work is excellent!"
—Jim Riley

Proofreading will help you make a great impression...

  • Everything you write is a reflection of you. I’ll make sure you look good. Readers and their reviews can be brutal, and potential customers can be critical if information isn’t concise. It’s my goal to put you and your writing in a favorable light.

  • I love editing and proofreading fiction: romance, action, adventure, historical, mystery, thriller, and young adult. I work with novels of any length and short stories. But don’t be shy about asking for help with your nonfiction: botany and gardening, business needs, memoir, self-help, health, history, and academic.

  • Rest assured that our partnership will mean thought-provoking conversations, together with suggestions to help put your best words out there and ensure your writing speaks to readers. Let’s bring buyers to your door with professionally written, edited, and proofread content for all types of readers. Your success is measured by the quality of the writing you share with the world. My goal is to give you that edge and see you succeed.
