- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have edited documents written by others for most of my career--for more than forty years. I've always been intrigued by language, and I love making a document (whether it's my own or someone else's) as nearly perfect as I (or we) can make it.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I do copyediting of theses and dissertations, class papers, books, websites--literally any kind of document in any area. My specialty areas are public health and technology, but I have edited papers and books in many areas. I have been editing technical documents for over forty years, and books of poetry and specialized Christian writing for about twenty. I am proficient with the major style guides (Chicago/Turabian, APA, MLA, etc.) and will edit in accordance with any manual of style you require, including work-, school-, or class-specific guides -- or, if none applies, I use an amalgamation of all style guides. (I have them all available for reference.)
