About me

I am a historical fiction and nonfiction author, copy editor and proofreader.

My historical fiction work-in-progress is based loosely on the life of a close friend, who is 105-years-old. Emilie believes she is an ordinary woman, but her life illustrates her extraordinary courage and adventures.

I am a copy editor and proofreader, with a focus on independent historical fiction authors.

I am the author of “Freelance Writing Express – How to Earn $$$ Within Two Weeks”, a comprehensive guide to a freelance writing career.

I like my historical fiction intelligent, well-researched and engagingly written.

I expect the same standards of myself in my writing, copy editing and proofreading.

I am an avid reader of fiction fiction. My Pinterest board entitled “Historical Novels Worth Reading” lists only 4* or higher novels.
