About this pro

How does your business stand out?

If you want to explain technical content to a lay audience... If you need help writing, revising or editing your manuscript... If you want to create a Spanish version of your work... You have come to the right place. My goal as a writer, as an editor, as a translator, is simple: TO WOW THE READER. How do I plan to do this? By creating, and helping you create, compelling characters and gripping storylines that will sweep readers into worlds as vivid as their own, worlds where their wildest dreams will be realized and their secret fears safely played to a cathartic conclusion. Please contact me. I’m looking forward to working with you.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love writing and I love editing. MY PROMISE TO YOU: Because I am a writer, too, I’m deeply aware of all the love, time and energy you have invested in your manuscript and promise to treat it with the utmost respect, while providing a professional, in-depth critique to help your work reach its full potential.

    Personal attention to better writing
    As a first time writer, Carmen gave wonderful advice on chapter to chapter outlining, books to check out, character development, and other things that personally related to my project. She gave positive feedback and considerate through criticism. I feel a lot more comfortable in my writing than I did before working with her.

    Carmen edited a novelette for me. Her work is thorough and detail oriented. She rather looks for the truth in your story than impress you with her editorial skills. She helped me improving both plot and wording. I will work with her again.

    Carmen has edited my articles for a trade magazine. My writing style is wordy and sometimes confusing. She consistently makes them sharp, clear and shorter. She is excellent.
