Fiction and nonfiction books
I have been a freelance copyeditor and proofreader since I graduated from the University of Washington's certificate in editing program. I primarily edit books and academic articles. I have worked on both fiction (literary fiction, romance, historical fiction, women's fiction, popular fiction, young adult, fantasy, and mystery) and nonfiction (natural history, memoir, self-help, history, biography, and travel) projects. My areas of interest are the humanities, travel, gardening, and natural history. I have a strong undergraduate degree in English from the University of Southern California. I work with the Chicago, APA, MLA, AP, AMA, and CSE style guides. I love editing for two primary reasons: I enjoy working on a variety of projects, and I'm a bit in love with the English language.
