Writing and Editing

"The first draft is just you telling yourself the story." - Terry Pratchett

First drafts are called "rough" for a reason. But are your second and third drafts still in dire need of repair, and your deadline was yesterday? Oof. I've been there.

Whether you need a content/copy editor, proofreader, or unbiased beta reader, I am here to help breathe life into your work. I will proof and help you construct, shape and streamline your story, and ensure your manuscript is ready for querying or self-publishing.

My specialties include grammar, spelling, punctuation, usage, story flow and dialogue.

I am a perfectionist and grammar fiend (if I were a rapper, my handle would be MC Grammar. No, really, though...). I can be tough; I will tell you exactly what I like and don't like, and what needs fixing before your project is ready for print.
