Specializing in scholarly texts...

  • I have over twenty-five years of experience editing textbooks, reference books, trade books, and other materials for prestigious trade and scholarly publishers, research institutions, and think tanks. I have also edited grant applications and journal articles for university academics.
  • Specific services include: copyediting, substantive editing, developmental editing, fact checking, rewriting, and writing. I bring to these services book design and production experience, onscreen editing skills, and extensive experience working with authors publishing in their second language.
  • I particularly enjoy making scholarly and technical manuscripts understandable to the general reader.
  • Although I am a generalist, I have developed expertise in government and politics, international development, economics, and the environment.
  • My clients and authors have found me meticulous, versatile, creative at editorial problem solving, easy to work with, and respectful of deadlines and bottom lines.
