Copyediting Portfolio

These are some of the nearly forty books I have copyedited since my editing career began in 2013. Many have been nominated for awards, and a large portion of those have been finalists or winners. I am so honored to have participated in the production of these novels.

Dianne Price passed away in August 2013, after a battle with terminal cancer, one week prior to the release date of the first book in her beloved Thistle Series. I never met her, but I feel like I have through the reading of this precious series. I count it a blessing to have polished her final novels.
