I'm an offbeat freelance editor with over ten years of editing experience. Though I specialize in academic writing and genre fiction, I will happily take my ruthless red pen to just about anything. There is no project too small or topic too odd for me to take on with glee! I'm here to support you and help you polish your work until it shines.

When it comes to genre fiction, I'm available for editing flash fiction, short stories, novellas, and full novels in a variety of genres, including science fiction, fantasy, romance, horror, erotica, and YA. I offer developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading, and sensitivity/authenticity reading. I am tremendously invested in supporting writers who are typically marginalized by the publishing industry. Stories that feature diverse characters, including people of colour, LGBT+ characters, disabled characters, etc, are of special interest to me; #ownvoices content is particularly welcome!
