Editing is simply the application of the common sense of any good reader. That’s why, to be an editor, you have to be a reader. It’s the number one qualification.
Robert Gottlieb

I have always loved to read. If you put a pile of books in front of me and a comfortable chair, I was one happy girl. Naturally, I thought that the best job in the world would be a reader, which turned into editing.

A little bit about myself:

I have a degree in Public Relations and Creative Writing. I was an editorial assistant for three years for a biweekly paper in New York; a journalist for a year in Southern Maryland; and a proofreader for a junk mail company in Southern Maryland. I was a substitute English teacher, and I have created lengthy documents and interviewed people for the Office of the State Superintendent of Education, in Washington, DC.

What I edit:
Everything. I edit and proofread anything from resumes and cover letters, to short stories and manuscripts.
