Qualifications & Experience


I’ve been working in the publishing industry for over ten years, first as a contributing writer at Writer’s Digest and later as the senior editor for The Oddville Press Literary Magazine. I have worked independently as an editor with Ravenswood Publishing, Indie Solutions, Quora.com, J. Ellington Ashton Press, and Scribendi. I have experience in both copywriting and creative writing with companies such as Bell Creative LLC, Blackstone Books, and most recently as a columnist at LitReactor.com. I completed my B.A. in English with a concentration in writing at Southern New Hampshire University. Today I run my own full-time freelance editing and writing business at Espresso Editing Services.

I am passionate about providing affordable, quality editing because I am also a devoted reader and author. Rather than show you how I would write it if it were my piece, I suggest how to improve your writing in your own style.
