Editing & Proofreading

What is an Editor and Proofreader?

My passion is with the written word. I offer my clients more than 35 years of experience in editing and proofreading. I read all my clients’ manuscripts and other written documents from the point of view of the “reader” to ensure that all written works produced have the author’s desired effect on his or her readers.

As your editor / proofreader / ghostwriter I work on the following documents:

• Manuscripts (both fiction and non-fiction)
• E-Books
• Newspaper and online articles
• Newsletters and blogs
• Brochures
• Technical documents (RFPs, proposals, technical reports)
• White papers
• Case studies
• Ghostwriting sections, chapters, or parts of manuscripts and other documents

Peggy worked closely with me in the editing and proofreading of all course materials and other written submissions.

She responded to our requests quickly and was very easy and extremely pleasant to work with.”
