Why I became an editor
I have always been in love with reading. It started in elementary school with books like The Hobbit, Harry Potter, and The Chronicles of Narnia. This passion came to a head in college when I got a job as a writing center tutor. I realized that helping people write down their thoughts and tell a story was my dream job.
Background and experience
My first job in the editing world was as a tutor while I attended college. When I completed my BA in English, I wanted to learn more, so I went on to get my Master of Professional Studies degree in Publishing. I have since worked as a freelance editor and proofreader.
Why I love proofreading and editing
I love reading someone's work and helping them improve their writing. Finding little mistakes is like playing a game for me, and I enjoy making sure a piece of writing is the best it can be. Creative writing, fiction, and novels are my passion, but I’ll happily read anything.
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling is my favorite set of books.
If I'm not reading, I'm crocheting amigurumi dolls, playing with my kids, baking something delicious, or watching an exciting sci-fi or fantasy TV show.
I read several paragraphs before I start. This helps me to set my mind on the subject and get a true feel for the author's voice and intentions.
