About Pamela

My authors appreciate my gentle approach to editing and trust my judgment when they veer out of the lane of standard English grammar. Sometimes I guide them back into the lane; sometimes I allow them to wander into other lanes to find their voice and rhythm.

In addition to line and copyediting and proofreading, Pamela offers:

  • manuscript reviews
  • fact-checking services
  • editing source materials and bibliographies.

Pamela provides a free sample edit (up to 1,500 words ) to assess the level of editing your manuscript would most benefit from.
