Bio
Since the mid-80s, I have been working as a freelance author, as well as holding down full-time jobs in many busy offices. My background includes publications in a variety of newspapers and magazines, and the publication of my first two novels in 2005. In addition to writing my own work, I also work as a freelance copyeditor for other authors, helping them make the best of their manuscripts.

I am originally from Springfield, Ohio, where I spent most of my life, but I now make my home in St. Louis, with my new husband and my daughter.

Description
If you have a book manuscript or shorter written work that needs to be polished, I can help!

Since 1985, I have been working as a freelance author (with several publications, including two novels of my own), so I know how important your written work is to you. As a copyeditor/proofreader, I make it my goal to treat every project with the same expedience, accuracy, and scrutiny that I would put my own work under. I have 20 years of experience in writing and editing, and I can help your manuscript shine.

If you have a manuscript in any length, any genre (including everything from essays and reports to long novels or nonfiction), I can sweep it for grammar, punctuation, spelling, continuity, clarity, tense, sentence structure, and a variety of other problems. I can even help you rewrite passages that are causing you trouble, and give you suggestions on how to better get your point across without losing your own style and tone.

For only $1 per page, on a flexible payment plan, I can proof your document in Microsoft Word and get it back to you quickly. Or, if you prefer, I can hand-check a hard copy by postal mail.

Contact me today about your project. I am eager to read your masterpiece and help you make it sparkle before you present it to your professor or publisher! If you'd like a work history and list of references, just ask! Contact me at autiej@gmail.com or visit http://http://autiej.googlepages.com/home »
