I am an author and freelance editor from upstate NY. I love reading, writing, spending time with my family, and – of course – 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 four novels (not yet published), an estate planning eBook, and two children’s books (not counting my own).
I published my first children’s book, Hammy’s New Home, in 2015. Since then, I have published two other children’s books – If I Were A Duck and Annie to the Rescue. I have plans to further my education by taking a class on writing for children as well as a writer’s workshop. You can find out more about my writing on my author website at http://melanielopata.weebly.com.
