I have over 20 years of editing and writing experience; I also hold a Ph.D. in English, and have 15 years of experience teaching literature and writing. Formerly the associate editor of an arts magazine, I currently edit academic books, articles, and dissertations in the humanities and social sciences, as well as literary nonfiction and fiction. I am adept at maintaining voice, style, and tone; maintaining consistency and logical flow; expanding and strengthening underdeveloped sections; and improving pacing, both at the sentence level and throughout the work as a whole. I have worked with every kind of author, from the established to the first-timer, and I have edited manuscripts for both university and independent presses. My writing experience includes scholarly articles, journalism, ghostwriting, grants, and white papers.
