Having written 4 books in the last few years that are currently available on Amazon (see portfolio below), I am a very competent writer and editor and proofreader for anyone who is writing their own print or e-book and needs those services to polish their own creation.
As a native English speaker, I have lived primarily in either the UK, Australia, or the USA and I am able to write or edit in either American or British spelling.
I am able to tailor my work to your specific needs. My quotations are given based on each individual project and the complexity of the writing and/or editing that is necessary for that assignment. My rates conform to those on record at the Editorial Freelancers Association.
Let me help you bring your project to life!
