I’m a professional proofreader and copy-editor, providing high quality editorial and writer services to academics, students and independent authors.

I operate two businesses: Academic Outcomes offers support for academic writing; and Crayon Rouge Editorial Solutions is designed for independent, self-published and hybrid authors of fiction and non-fiction.

My services include:

  • Proofreading to check spelling, punctuation, syntax and grammar
  • Copy-editing to improve expression, diction and style, including appropriate phrasing and terminology
  • Developmental editing to improve structure and organization (for academic and non-fiction projects)
  • Beta reading for fiction and non-fiction
  • Formatting to prepare texts for publication (either digital or traditional)
  • Reference- and fact-checking services
  • For all potential projects, I provide an initial FREE consultation in order to discuss a client’s requirements, to prepare a quote, and to give a client the opportunity to assess whether I am suitable for the project.
