Freelance editorial services
Welcome. Are you looking for an editor who can polish your writing until it gleams? If so, you're in the right place. I'm a freelance editor with over 15 years of experience. I've worked on novels, short stories, newspapers, magazines, and nonfiction. I would be glad to put my talents to work for you.
My editing schedule is full through the end of 2013. I'm happy to make arrangements for projects in January 2014 and beyond. If you need an editor before then, I suggest contacting one of the talented editors listed on my Resources page. Due to limitations on my available time for freelance work, it may take me a few days to respond to inquiries; thanks for your patience.

Freelancing is only one part of my work life. I'm also a book reviews editor at Publishers Weekly, where I handle reviews of science fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, and erotica. I co-host Publishers Weekly Radio on Sirius XM's Book Radio channel. I'm editor-at-large for #24MAG, a magazine where each issue is created from start to finish in 24 hours. I volunteer with speculative fiction conventions Arisia and Readercon, and the Hunter College Campus Schools. I'm proud to be a full member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and the Freelancers Union, and an affiliate member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and Romance Writers of America. I believe strongly in giving back to my communities and especially enjoy teaching children and teens.
