Hello! I work full time in the world of words as an experienced book editor, ghostwriter, copywriter and award-winning journalist.

I was honored to received the Excellence in Cancer Journalism Award from the American Heart Association in 2009 and am a contributing editor for five lifestyles magazines. I was also recognized as one of the Top 15 Texas Book Editors in August 2017 and offer proofreading, copy editing, line editing, developmental editing and substantive editing services to clients in the U.S., Canada and Australia.

My background as an English major, former certified English teacher, and years of publishing experience have served my clients well. I am also pursuing a master's degree in mass communication - digital media and a certification in Strategic PR and Advertising in Healthcare to better serve clients in communications, advertising, public relations, marketing and healthcare communities.

Please visit my book editing testimonials, as well as my writing portfolio. I wish you well on all your writing projects and would be delighted to help! - Melanie
