Clio Editing Services
I am a freelance editor who specializes in fiction.
Genres I edit include romance, mystery/thriller, fantasy, science fiction, horror, historical, and young adult genres. I work mainly with self-published authors and small presses.
I offer content editing, line editing, copyediting and proofreading (as well as packages combining the above services).
I have helped to bring close to 300 titles to market, including bestsellers such as Brenna Aubrey's Gaming the System series and Wayne Stinnett's Jesse McDermitt series.
I pride myself on preserving the author's voice, style and vision while ensuring clarity, consistency and correctness.
I am American, but I edit in both US English (using Chicago Manual of Style and Webster's 11th Collegiate Dictionary) and UK English (to include CAN, AUS, and NZ variants, using the Oxford Style Manual and Oxford dictionaries). For non-US authors, I provide full Americanization services, or, without Americanizing, I can advise authors on usage or vocabulary choices and cultural differences that are likely to confuse US readers.
Though I specialize in fiction, I also edit general nonfiction (business, memoir, popular history, and much more) and academic work (using APA, MLA or Chicago styles).
I hold a B.A. in English Language and Literature from the University of Michigan, as well as an M.A. in English Literature. I also studied law (University of Michigan) and library and information science (Indiana University) before becoming a full-time freelance editor.
