Copy editing and proofreading: excellent eye for detail, experienced with technical economic materials and financials. Able to edit with sufficient care so that the author's voice is heard; also comfortable rewriting substantially for maximum readability and interest. Writing: background in travel, local interest, literature, particularly children's books, and children's issues in general, such as child-rearing, travel with children, college admission process. I also have experience in working with individuals using English as a second language. Projects of all sizes are welcome. I have a master's degree in library science with a specialization in children's literature. I am a conscientious and diligent writer and copy editor. Any work that I complete will be on time, thorough, and polished. I accept a limited number of projects in order to give each one my full attention, and my goal is total employer satisfaction as well as a pleasant work experience.
