Professional Editing & 
Proofreading Services




I am a top rated copyeditor and proofreader who has worked on more than 140 books. I can professionally edit your manuscript in an encouraging way so you feel confident sharing it with the world.

If you are looking for someone to tear apart your book or other writing, I'm not the editor for you. I will help you improve your writing, but in a friendly, encouraging way that preserves your style and voice.

I specialize in editing Christian books (fiction and nonfiction), but I have experience working on a variety of genres. Past jobs have included YA fiction, business nonfiction, memoirs, children's books, and self-help books. I have helped many self-published authors and work with custom/hybrid publishing companies.

I usually recommend at least two rounds of editing on a book, a copyedit and a final proofread. 


My prices are based on word count and services requested.

There are different levels of editing, but here is what I provide.

Light content edit- I can read your book and give notes on ideas you may want to expand on or cut out. I can point out gaps or inconsistencies as well. If I think content could be rearranged, I can also note that. This is not an in-depth developmental edit.

Copy/line edit- I can edit your book for flow, word choice, tense, point of view, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. I will also be on the lookout for inconsistencies and anything that needs to be clarified. I can also do a basic fact check and help create citations if needed.

Proofread- I can edit your book or other text by only fixing errors such as spelling, punctuation, grammar, and formatting problems.

I can edit in Word or Google Docs, and I am happy to use Track Changes or Suggestion Mode so you can see my work. I can proofread in Word or on PDFs in Adobe.


Light content editing
Some books I've edited: 

This is part of a YA mystery series. I provided light content editing, copyediting, and proofreading for all three books in the series.

This is a Christian non-fiction book that educates readers about how God uses trials in their lives. I provided light content editing, copyediting, and proofreading for this book.

This is the first book in a children's book series. I provided copyediting and proofreading for this book and the second, which is yet to be published.

This is a Christian non-fiction book about the different aspects of God's divine nature and how readers can move to living with God. I provided light content editing, copyediting, and proofreading.

I have a bachelor's degree with a major in journalism and a minor in English. I worked as a copyeditor at a daily newspaper for three years before changing gears to stay home with my kids.

I have been freelance editing since 2018 and am a top rated freelancer on Upwork. I have copyedited and proofread more than 140 books as well as articles, essays, and other writing. My specialty is Christian books, but I enjoy working on other books as well. I am a member of the Christian PEN.

You can read more about me in my featured editor interview on the PEN Tips blog.
