Bio and Areas of Expertise
I have been enjoying working with authors and editing their texts since 1982. From 1982 to 1997, I was writing and editing in Japan where I worked with many ESL and EFL writers. After I returned to the United States in 1997, I began working with every type of writer: academics, students, scientists, financial experts, journalists, creative writers, and many others. On all projects, I follow my clients’ requests and meet all deadlines. I return an edited copy with all changes clearly indicated (tracked changes are in red). I also provide numerous comments and suggestions. I then follow up promptly on all e-mail messages to resolve any pending issues. I live in the Eastern Time Zone (North Carolina) and typically start my day at 6:00 a.m. and then edit until the day's work is done. I look forward to working with you. Thank you.
