Writing and Editing
Wendy's exceptional writing and editing talent captured the heartbeat of our prepared manuscript,
modifying it from great to excellent without losing our personal writing styles, stories, or humor.
Wendy was professional, experienced, and efficient while working both with us and independently.
Capitol Hell, a fifteen-time national and international book award winner, is truly a showcase of Wendy's talents.
—Jayne J. Jones and Alicia M. Long
Whether you're a business writer, budding novelist, or academic researcher, using language to create meaning is what you do. Imagination and persistence are as essential to that pursuit as organization and technical knowledge.
Working with an editor to help craft your message ensures your writing is the best it can be, benefiting you and your readers.
I provide a wide range of editorial services to academic, corporate, nonprofit, and individual clients at every stage of the creative process, from conception to completion. From developmental assistance to content creation to copy editing—or even basic proofreading--I'll meet you where you are and help you get where you want to go.
My experience spans genres—from fiction, essays, memoir, and criticism to blog posts, book cover blurbs, and social-media messaging. For more information about my specialties, check out the drop-down menu, above.
One of my best decisions in writing Call of the Couch was bringing Wendy on to edit.
My intuition told me my manuscript needed refinement, but I didn't know what to do.
Wendy suggested several revisions, which all made sense to me, and my book is much better for it.
I'd love to know more about what you're working on!

In addition to freelance projects for individual clients, I work frequently with the publishing gurus at
Beaver's Pond Press, where I've edited dozens of books:
