Hire me as your copyeditor and proofreader.  I have experience writing and editing in content areas such as naval history, psychology, humanities and liberal arts, communication skills, self-help, human interest, speech-writing, association activities, biography, memoir, philosophy, and spirituality. I have worked with non-fiction writers and publishers in both the UK and US. While I am familiar with the AP Style Guide, the Chicago Manual of Style, The New Oxford Style Manual and the style guides for the American Psychological Association and the Modern Humanities Research Association, I can adapt my work to any style guide you (or your publisher) choose.
