Professional/Personal Overview
  Scholarly copy editor, proofreader, and copy writer.

I specialize in fiction and literature, but I read other subjects as well, including religious studies, history, and politics. In addition to freelancing, I have three years of in-house experience with university presses and journals.

I write book jacket and catalog copy for Southern Illinois University Press, where I also created advertising campaigns and ran the book awards division while serving as a marketing assistant.

My recent projects include

* Lungs Full of Noise by Tessa Mellas

* The Road to Chinese Exclusion: The Denver Riot, 1880 Election, and Rise of the West by Liping Zhu
