Writer   Researcher   Editor   Proofreader

“Keep your head down, fingers on the computer, and write. Ignore the naysayers, the skeptics, the friends, church patrons, or family members who provide nothing but negativity. Your story is the one that counts. Write it.”

— Sarah Gerdes, Author Straight Talk

About me

I am a deeply experienced editor, proofreader, and a native English speaker with a B.A. in English. Those I have trained as language QA specialists have called me a “militant stickler” for proper wording, grammar, punctuation, and concise written communication.

I owned and managed a national medical transcription company for 30+ years; I reviewed, proofed, edited, and formatted on an almost-daily basis.

Since retiring, my focus is on editing books, articles, essays, college/post-grad papers, and online content. I enjoy working with authors in every genre and making a positive impact on their manuscipts. I tenaciously focus on every client’s work, setting aside any distractions and giving their ideas and message the attention it deserves. Learning your writing style and needs is the first step; becoming your trusted partner is the foundation for every step thereafter. How can I help you?
