I have also been called a Word Nerd, Punctuation Vigilante, Grammar Ninja, and Grammar Geek. I enjoy editing more than humanly possible or socially acceptable.

All while maintaining the client's voice.
As a copy editor for a publishing company, as well as in my freelance work, I edit manuscripts before an author's book is published. I have also been a ghostwriter for many individuals and businesses and have an academic journal publication under my belt. Additionally, I have contributed non-fiction stories to several magazines, and write articles for newspapers and blogs for a variety of websites. I also currently write and edit web content for many firms and individuals. My freelance work nets me articles, blogs, letters, essays, theses, and dissertations, as well; all of which helps keep me interested and involved in a variety of different types of writing and editing.
