I was an English nerd from the beginning. I read obsessively as a kid, only somewhat reluctantly in high school English, and ravenously through my Lit classes in college. During my time studying English at Texas A&M University, I discovered the joys of proofreading. Only a perfectionist could love such tedious work, but it gave me a thrill to help my classmates polish their papers. After working in corporate editing and freelancing on the side for nine years, I made the transition to full-time freelance editing and never looked back. My passion is to work with independent authors, to help them polish their work, grow their writing craft, and connect with a vibrant and loyal readership. In short, I love to help authors grow a successful writing career and get their books into the hands of adoring fans.
