    I am a molecular biologist, an avid reader, and a talented editor. As an accomplished researcher and scientific writer, I have authored and co-authored several publications in the medical community. I was also a nominee for the 2005 Sun-Sentinel Best Editorial Award. However, when the work is done, I love nothing more than curling up with a great novel. I have a passion for books, fiction or not, and apply this love of reading into my editing approach. My edit is meant to ensure the manuscript is well-written and error-free. What it includes: · Copyediting: ensures the copy is clear, correct, concise, comprehensible, and consistent · Line editing: addresses awkward sentence structure and word/phrase repetition · Proofreading: a final check of the manuscript for errors and typos  less

    Do you get tripped up by pronoun-antecedent agreement . . . struggle with parallel structure . . . have difficulty with your modifiers dangling, squinting, or being misplaced? Perhaps you're a firm believer that if plenty of commas are used, their placement is arbitrary? If so, you're not alone. Grammar and punctuation can be really tricky, even after years of schooling. Still, you don't have to let that overshadow your writing. I can help by making your writing shine without changing your "voice." I'm a freelance editor with over 10 years' experience. For several of those years, I edited medical documents for punctuation, grammar, style, formatting, and accuracy of content. I now run my own editing business, providing proofreading, copyediting, line editing, and manuscript critique services for fiction and nonfiction documents. My professional memberships include Editorial Freelancers Association, Christian Editor Connection, and The Christian PEN: Proofreaders and Editors Network. In addition to my experience as an editor, I also have a strong creative writing background, with several poems, short stories, and articles published in literary magazines and periodicals. Fiction writing (primarily contemporary and historical) is my first love, and I regularly attend fiction-writing and editing classes online and at writers' conferences. I've also judged manuscript excerpts in fiction-writing contests. I'm represented by William K. Jensen Literary Agency. I edit and proofread primarily using industry-standard MS Word Track Changes, but I'm also proficient with Google Drive and Scrivener. My editing/proofreading projects have included but are not limited to: * Book manuscripts - Fiction novels and novellas (no erotica or explicit sex) - Memoirs - Nonfiction, including self-help and medical-related - Cookbooks - Children's books - Inspirational (I am a long-time Christian and especially enjoy editing faith-based writings) * Short stories (fiction and autobiographical) * Personal statements for acceptance to graduate school and medical residency * White Papers * Articles, including medical journal articles * University-level assignments written by students who speak English as a second language * Excel spreadsheets * Blog posts * Translated documents I'm also proficient with Scrivener and can provide various levels of assistance with this program, including manuscript setup, template development, and in-program editing. In addition, I'm able to format and upload books for Kindle and CreateSpace. My other background includes clinical experience in the medical field (primarily Internal Medicine and Pediatrics), post-secondary teaching experience as an instructor in a Medical Assistant program, and knowledge of nutrition, fitness, and various specialty diets (gluten-free, paleo, diabetic, multiple allergen). My English language and editing proficiency is reflected by my oDesk test scores as well as my feedback from clients. I have well over 1000 hours' time on oDesk (fixed-price jobs are not included in oDesk's calculation of hours), I take special interest in every document I edit, and I consistently provide quality work within deadline.  less

    *** Please click multiple times the "More" button under Work History and Feedback at the bottom of this page to see my five-star ratings and reviews from dozens of clients. *** *** Note: I now accept only Hourly (time tracked) jobs with a Pay Rate of $25.00 or more. If you are interviewing me personally about a Fixed-Price job, please switch it to Hourly and set the Pay Rate to at least $25.00 if you want me to consider it. If I am hired, I promise to track my time until I have logged enough hours to meet our agreed-upon total price. Thank you. **** I can help you if you are someone who needs: - Personal notes transcribed. - One-on-one interviews transcribed. - Help with editing any written communication. - Poems, song lyrics, or speeches written. - A better online dating profile. - Help with filling out spreadsheets. - Copy for your website or smartphone app. - Anything written in the English language. I graduated from Randolph College (formerly Randolph-Macon Woman's College), a well respected private liberal arts college, where I majored in English. Although the college experience contributed to my growth as a writer, I have always had an intuitive sense of what is right and wrong in English writing. I am a top-notch editor. I have a keen eye for detail and truly care about my work. Since 2007, I have worked as a transcriptionist -- that is, someone who types the spoken word. I have experience with the myriad accents and speaking styles of North Americans, South Americans, Europeans, Asians, Africans, and Australians -- yes, that's every continent except Antarctica. I have transcribed interviews related to law, international business, market research, sociology, sports, and Search Engine Optimization -- to name just a few. Many of my clients have stuck with me for years -- contacting me whenever they need work done. They trust me. Check out their praise in my oDesk reviews. If you are a full- or part-time professor at a four-year or community college, I strongly urge you to contact me to establish a long-term working relationship. If you are a student, I would also love to hear from you. I have been editing professionally since 2009, doing everything from proofreading for urgent business projects to complete rewriting of memoirs and novels. I can tackle any project, large or small. I am honored to have transcribed an anti-violence conference that was sent to U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden. I also love helping people find love through dating websites such as Match.com. I will write you a sparkling, enticing profile based on the information you provide. For that work, I have gotten praise like, "I am without words because what you have here is something that can make me shine from here to Timbuktu and beyond." Except for the most complex assignments, my turnaround time for any project is usually no more than 72 hours, and usually closer to 48 hours. *** Please click multiple times the "More" button under Work History and Feedback at the bottom of this page to see my five-star ratings and reviews from dozens of clients. ***  less
