Seren Publishing Co., Inc.

Every editor pays close attention to detail, but I am known for catching things others may not. Even in fiction, logistics and consistency contribute to how well the audience will perceive the quality and believability of the story. And in nonfiction, especially in business or academic writing, accuracy and clarity are crucial.

During my twenty-plus years as an editor and proofreader, I have worked with large publishing houses such as Prentice Hall, Southwestern Collegiate, and Wiley, and I now specialize in helping independent authors. My clients appreciate my analytical skills, and they rely on my affinity for each author’s unique style and voice.

Along with book-length manuscripts, I also edit and proofread many types of publications: magazines, newsletters, business reports, comic books, blogs, website text, and more. Quick turnaround is available on certain projects.

Let my expertise help your book or other writing project get the positive reviews, results, and recognition it deserves.
