Polish provides luster, adds richness, and enhances beauty. It works on fingernails, shoes, furniture, your car. And on your words.
As a professional editor for more than 35 years, I offer comprehensive editing of fiction as well as nonfiction. My specialty is sharpening and polishing your manuscript to enhance the readability and impact of your writing, whether a novel, a business manual, or a dissertation.
My background includes work in both non-profit and commercial businesses, from assistant editor to communications manager, encompassing writing, editing, proofreading, design, layout, and production. With experience in nonfiction, academic, business, and technical editing, I emphasize word choice, style, tone, organization, flow, and development in addition to essential grammar, spelling, and punctuation. For fiction, I also address character motivation and growth, plot development, action, and consistency.
My specialty is polishing your writing, providing an outside perspective that frees you to focus on your ideas and follow your inspiration.
