I perfect your manuscript while respecting your writing voice and style. Writing can be a difficult and emotional process. I take care of the technical aspects of grammar, style, and logic, leaving you free to focus on the creative aspects of writing. My editing style was once compared to a butter knife: I smooth out the rough spots without spoiling the overall effect.
