I am an independent editor, proofreader, and writer with a BA in English. I am skilled in copy editing, developmental editing, proofreading, and ghostwriting. I edit fiction, nonfiction, short stories, novels, blog entries, articles, letters, promotional materials, magazine copy, and other corporate and personal publications.


I edit for a wide range of clients, from award-winning authors to those just dipping their toes in the writing business. I have edited  op-ed pieces for Charles P. Garcia, CEO of, whose articles can be found in Fox News Latino and the Huffington Post.

I spent 29 years as a public school teacher and am familiar with education-related terminology and topics. I have performed editing services for Fort Bend Independent School District in Sugar Land, Texas.

I have written two booklets on the topic of freelance editing, both of which are available for purchase on this website. You’ll find them under the Resources tab.
