    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
