Connect with your readers

2016-03-10 04.36.21-website

I’ll work with you to ensure your message is clear, concise, accurate and compelling, your voice is retained, and you truly connect with your audience.

I do that by focusing on areas where your work can be refined, looking at issues like structure, flow and pacing, consistency and language, and grammar, spelling and punctuation. There’s also manuscript evaluation and proofreading and a few things in between.

With solid writing and design experience in the editing mix and over thirty years in publishing, I can ensure all the elements of your project play nice together. I’m ready to jump in at a particular stage or manage the whole shebang.

Whether your project is large or small, whether you want to educate, entertain, persuade, promote or tell a riveting story, I help you connect with your readers. I love language, and I treat your words as carefully as I would my own.


Joanne’s editing was a remarkably positive experience for me. From the outset, I sensed she was on my side and her edits were alway thoughtful, considerate and supportive. After she was done her work, I realized I had a much-improved manuscript — and still had my confidence as a writer. It was a wonderful experience to work with such a talented editor. I highly recommend Joanne to any writer looking for an objective and comprehensive edit. — Robert Hayes, Zhòh — The Clan of the Wolf
