I have also edited fiction (novels and screenplays) and nonfiction (books, journal articles, and technical papers).

R. is an integral part of my freelance publishing team and has edited five novels for me over the last four years. Her attention to detail and ability to help me find the right word have helped improve my writing skills, as well as polish each book. R. is a complete professional, meets deadlines, and is always available if I have questions. Without her guidance, patience, and insightful corrections, I don't believe my own writing business would be on such a successful track. I have no hesitation in recommending her for projects large or small.

I had the pleasure of working with R. on several training-related projects. Rose's technical writing and editing skills were of great value on multiple occasions. R. is capable of understanding subject matter quickly and making sure the message is aligned with the target audience. For example, R. worked with me on a data warehouse training course and she provided critical feedback, innovative input, and technically sound alternatives almost immediately. In addition to her technical skills, R. also possesses the soft skills required to organize and manage the work/schedule. She's flexible and adaptable to changing priorities and always looking for ways to succeed. I'd welcome the opportunity to work with R. again in the future.

For perspective, I have an English degree, tutor pre-college students to take the SAT/ACT in English, and write screenplays. I’m picky, and R. C. is the only person that I trust with my material. She is a writer’s writer and editor. Her skills are beyond compare, and the bonus is that she finishes jobs in a timely manner, is a pleasure to work with, and adds value on every project.
