Editor/Writer

 

As a writer myself, I understand and value the author's voice and know the importance of a clean manuscript.

 

Thus, my goal as an editor is to help authors produce engaging, entertaining, and fluid fiction manuscripts by offering quality work and a timely turnaround without undermining and/or changing the author's style. 

 

I use my love for the world of words, my eye for grammar, spelling, structure, and consistency, as well as my extensive reading habits to help authors polish their work and make it shine like the gem it deserves to be.
