And I will accomplish this while working professionally, honestly and dependably. My skills were acquired from 20 years of editing and writing in book publishing, marketing, and online and e-published content. *Please note: I do not bill hourly for editing work. I bill per word.

I will work tirelessly for you, meeting or exceeding your deadline while providing daily or weekly status reports. You can count on me for last minute projects, and to go above what is required. I take the initiative to research and understand what I edit and write. It's difficult for a writer to edit his or her own work because you know it too well.
