Editing, Writing, and Research Services


Are you polishing a manuscript for publication? Putting the finishing touches on your dissertation? Looking for a freelance editor?

Over the past fifteen years, I have edited more than one hundred book-length manuscripts. I have worked most often with university presses publishing nonfiction in the humanities and social sciences. I have also worked on educational curricula, how-to manuals, technical archaeological monographs, and a debut mystery novel. For nearly a decade I have also taught a first-year college writing course. That hands-on experience is supplemented by graduate education from Vanderbilt University and Harvard University.

My range of experience will improve your writing. Let’s talk about how I can meet your needs and help you communicate more clearly.

“I wanted to write to you again to express how grateful all of the contributors to the volume are to your most excellent copy-editor. . . .  Without exception, everyone remarked on what a fantastic job he did in improving their chapters. Many of us have been through the copy-editing process numerous times over the years, and rarely have we been lucky enough to work with someone as talented.” (2010)

“Let me reiterate how pleased I am with the copyediting.  Of course I’m always grateful when someone corrects my stupid errors, but the copyeditor here did much more than that, improving the manuscript in other ways, including pointing out sentences and phrases I knew were weak but hadn’t previously had sufficient time or imagination to improve, and now had one last chance to try to get right.” (2012)

Writing and Research

Do you need a web content developer? Is your organization developing a research report?

Let me help. I have graduate degrees from Harvard and Vanderbilt and have engaged in a series of research projects in the humanities and social sciences, both as part of my own academic career and in collaboration with others. I also served as a web content developer for a website to accompany the PBS documentary Prince among Slaves.
