About

Editor and creative writer

“Sheila is an outstanding and intuitive copy editor; very fast, thorough, and competent. She also makes helpful suggestions for clarifying your message or content. It's clear when you see her edits and comments that Sheila reads every word in the manuscript. This was my second project with Sheila. I recommend her and will use her services again.”

I am an accomplished editor, proofreader and article writer. Born and educated in the United Kingdom, I have lived in the United States for many years, and am comfortable working in either language. I am available for deep line editing for syntax, developmental editing, proofreading, creative writing, book indexing and transcription. I have worked on the Elance site for several years, with a 5.0 lifetime rating, and have many private clients, now on Upwork with 100% rating..

I have worked for many years with writers of fiction and non-fiction. My portfolio includes books on self-help; medical; personal development and relationships; spiritual and motivational books; how-to books; recipes; autobiographies and biographies; poetry and children’s books; fantasy, paranormal, erotic and romance fiction; real estate; entrepreneurial, technical and business books, and the curricula for two online traffic schools. Many of my clients have been first-time authors; most of their work has been published and is available on Amazon.
Although I work primarily as an editor, I have ghostwritten a book; provided the ending for a science fiction novel; written and rewritten over 350 SEO articles and blog content.
My goal is to turn your words and ideas into a book or article that will stand out from the crowd; to enhance them and make them shine.
