I am an author and freelance editor from upstate NY. I love reading, writing, spending time with my family, and editing. In 2017, I completed an editing course at Herkimer County Community College (Herkimer, NY) and received a certificate called “Keys to Effective Editing.” I have, since, edited a non-fiction book, several fiction novels and children’s books (not counting my own) and an eBook on estate planning. My experience includes copy editing, production editing, designing and type setting.
I published my first children’s book, Hammy’s New Home, in 2015. Since then, I have published other children’s books – If I Were A Duck, Annie to the Rescue, and Border Buddies. I have plans to further my education by taking a class on writing for children as well as a writer’s workshop.
