About

I specialize in developmental editing, line editing, and proofreading--I take manuscripts and improve their story arcs and characterizations and fix all grammatical and stylistic errors. But most of all, I punch up the prose--I make it more vivid and more concise, and I make dialog sound more interesting and natural.

Lindsay helped to edit my work of fiction. Not only did I receive proofreading services, but also, Lindsay provided in-depth, constructive commentary with an action plan on how to correct what was needed. I knew Lindsay would be the right editor for this project as I am a big fan of her own written works!

Kat is a truly gifted editor. I’ve hired her on numerous occasions to help me communicate exactly what it is I’ve wanted to say. I’ve received nothing but positive responses on each occasion. Her communication is unparallel and she has a delightfully calming disposition and attitude. Will hire again and again A+++

Rosemary Donahue is a visionary editor, articulate, dedicated, honest, and detail-oriented, striking the balance between amiable and diligence. She recently co-founded Lumen, the innovative journal of literature and ideas by and for women, which promises to be an important American magazine. She also served as fiction editor of Pacific Review, doing most of the design and layout, demonstrating style, toughness and pizazz under time-pressure at every juncture. She's one of the best editors I've ever worked with in the past twenty years!

Julia edited a number of my research manuscripts. In each case, she was prompt in returning edited drafts, and I have been impressed with the thoroughness of her work. Particularly important for me, she was able to recommend edits that fit within the "scientific" style of writing, which is sometimes difficult, in my experience, for editors to do.
