Hello! I’m Jen. I’m so happy you’ve found my page! Since you have, I assume you’re in the market for an editor. Well, you’ve come to the right place. I specialize in self-published fiction in the genres of romance, erotica, new adult and young adult, but I am open to other types of projects as well, including editing in the fields of criminal justice and medicine. Please don’t be afraid to ask me!
My background is diverse. I have a BS in Criminal Justice, though in the end, I chose not to pursue that as a career. I worked in the banking industry for 7+ years before stepping up to be a full-time mom to my two beautiful daughters. During my time at home with them, I got my degree in medical transcription and worked for over 11 years in the industry as a medical report editor/quality auditor. Needing a change and wanting to pursue my love of books, I decided to hone my editing skills further and recently obtained my certification in copyediting from the University of California, San Diego, and I am eager to dive headlong into the world of editing and publishing.
So now you’re probably thinking, “hmmm…she’s got a background in criminal justice, banking, and medical transcription, but how’s that going to help me? I have a novel that needs editing and I’m just not sure this is the editor for me.” Well, I’m going to tell you how I can help you!
I’ve spent the last 11+ years creating and editing medical reports, tens – if not hundreds – of thousands of reports, going through them with a fine-tooth comb, checking for grammar, punctuation, spelling, and accuracy. I have checked facts, researched names of drugs, instruments and the like, all to make absolutely sure that the patient’s medical record is accurate and correct. And believe me, I’m very good at what I do. I have an exceptional grasp of the English language, am a self-professed “grammar Nazi”, and I’m the one people come to when they’re having trouble with a word, phrase, or just can’t come up with the words they need to express their feelings.
In the recent past, I’ve done some proofreading and editing for a few authors, including FL Jacob and S. H. Pratt, as well as doing some beta reading for various authors. I am an avid reader as well, focusing mainly on the genres listed above, but I also love a good mystery/suspense novel from time to time. All things considered, I am absolutely confident I can tackle your manuscript and help you to make it the best it can possibly be.
Still not convinced? Check out FL Jacob and S. H. Pratt on Facebook, message them and ask their opinion yourself. Check out their books while you’re at it! Then, please contact me and let me know what I can do for you.
