     I've been developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading on a freelance basis since April 2014 and as a staff editor since September 2016 in both trade publishing and educational/academic institutions.


     I have experience editing literary fiction, upmarket fiction, YA fiction, science fiction, fantasy, memoir, science, culture, reference, and educational/academic texts on a variety of subjects, and I'm skilled in editing English translation texts. Samples of copyedits and developmental edits I've performed are available on the samples page. (To protect the intellectual property of my clients, the samples page is password protected; to gain access, please email me with the reason for your access request.)
