Proofreading & editing

My goal is to provide high-quality editing and proofreading services for Christian, “clean reads,” and nonfiction authors at an efficient pace and an affordable rate.

I worked with Sara to proofread my book, Red. I can honestly say that Sara is a thorough proofreader, who caught small mistakes that can be missed. It was a pleasure to work with her. Sh

I am a multi-published author with a keen eye for detail and I love grammar (and hate typos!). Before becoming a full-time author, I was a medical transcriptionist and Quality Assurance editor for Cardioscribes, Inc. for six years. Preparing and proofreading medical documents fine-tuned my ability to spot errors.

If you would like to contact me with questions or for a general estimate, please feel free to email me at Or you can shoot me an email through my contact page here.

I would be happy to proofread or edit your first five pages for free so that we may test our compatibility and the speed at which I feel I will be able to process your manuscript.

I look forward to working with you!
