I'm an editor with more than 35 years of experience, and I'm available for freelance work. My experience includes rewriting and editing children's, young-adult, and adult trade fiction and nonfiction, how-to and self-help books, books on alternative medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, yoga, qigong, healing, and nutrition, technical documents, marketing material, as well as autobiographies, biographies, and memoirs. Many people have told me that I have a gift for writing and rewriting clear, concise, colorful, and flowing prose that is perfectly punctuated and grammatically correct, keeping the author's voice or improving it. Sometimes with fiction, I suggest further character and plot development and more description. And I do whatever else is needed to make the book come alive and be more readable and publishable.
