About Me

My name is Cindy and I have a passion for good tales. When I was little, I frequently got in trouble for staying up past my bedtime, reading books by the soft glow of my night light. Things haven't changed much, except now I can use my Kindle to pursue literary adventures late into the night. I am a wife and a mother of three little ones who keep me busy in our Colorado home.  

My favorite aspect of freelance editing is meeting and working with wonderful authors. I especially love working with indie or self-publishing authors. Each story is unique and presents different editing challenges. I understand how hard you've worked to nurture your story, from a budding idea to a fully fledged novel, and will treat your work with the care and respect it deserves.
