Genre Fiction


I interned for an ebook publisher from 2015-2017, and in 2017 started editing as a freelancer. I copy edit genre fiction and enjoy almost all genres, but my favorites are mystery, fantasy, and romance. I also do developmental editing and critiques of romance novels. I work in US English and I use Chicago Manual of Style, but if you will be self-publishing then I am happy to work with you on your own style--as long as it's consistent! My copy edits include a style sheet that I create as I edit and return to you with your copy edited manuscript. I work in Word using Track Changes. I try to maintain your voice while making your story easy for your readers; when editing, I advocate not only for you but also for your readers and your story.

I am active in my local editing community and I seek out professional development by finding webinars, classes, and conferences. I live in North Texas and enjoy knitting while listening to audiobooks and podcasts.
