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.
