About This Gig

Hello! I am a  professional writer and editor with 30+ years of experience in various media, including books, magazine and newspaper articles, corporate annual reports, technical manuals, and copy for internet sites. I will meticulously check your document for spelling and punctuation errors using either American or British standards and lightly copy-edit the text to improve clarity and flow.  

I aim for a 24-hour turnaround on short- to medium-length documents. If you have a document of 10,000 words or more, please send me a message -- let's discuss your needs, deadline and pricing.  

I look forward to working with you!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you just run the text through a spell-check/grammar-check software?
    Absolutely NOT! Software does not distinguish between palate, pallet and palette. I go through every document twice, and almost invariably I catch things on the second pass that I missed on the first. Can I turn around 20,000 words in 24 hours? Probably not. And that's a good thing. Trust me!
  • What's the difference between US and UK usage?
    Spelling is the most obvious difference: color vs colour, etc. There are also different punctuation and vocabulary conventions. If you need one or the other, please let me know that.
