I am a developmental editor. I will work with you from the first draft on.

 

    Don’t worry if you think you’re a lousy writer and your manuscript is no good. Many great authors feel that way! I’ll be honest with you about your weaknesses and help you to find your strengths.

 

    Query me, preferably by email, at bkeditor@aol.com. My phone number is 941-955-8488 (Eastern Time Zone). Tell me the most important things about your manuscript, including its subject and word count, and we’ll discuss my fees.

 

    I have had twenty-two years of formal education, including a year at Oxford University studying English on a Fulbright Fellowship. My Ph.D. in English is from Harvard University, and I earned an M.S.W. from The Catholic University of America.

 

    I began editing by correcting my own articles for publication, and after teaching for more than ten years at the University of Maryland and doing psychotherapy for ten more, I was ready for formal training in editing.
