I’ve been applying a red pen to my own work and others’ copy for years in my “professional” career. I love novels and writing and revision, and sometimes I edit manuscripts for folks. Primarily, I want to see good work get into the hands of readers, whether a writer’s intention is to self publish or go the traditional route. My credentials can be found on my About page. I also manage websites on occasion.
