Retired from long-haul trucking after 43 years on the road. I've had a life-long love affair with the English language. Have read extensively since pre-school days and attended numerous writing workshops and courses. I have dabbled in writing over the years; had a few small things published but nothing major.
Since retiring, I've discovered I have a knack for editing the words of others, so I started taking freelance work to supplement my pension. Because I don't depend on it for my main income I can keep my rates low and take more time with each project.
I do a free 1000 word sample edit to determine compatibility with potential clients as well as determine what level of editing is required.
Samples can be submitted through my website. Also on my website you will find testimonials from clients and a page with many of the books I've edited over the past few years. Also, you will find regular articles dealing with a variety of writer related topics.
Unique traits: I'm a bit of a nitpicker., but my clients love that about me because I root out even the tiniest discrepancies.
