Indu edited a novel of mine and I found her to be wonderfully detail-oriented and knowledgeable about editing and book publication. The combination of competence and patience made her a really good person to work with.​

As an editor, I'm here to help your message reach the right audience most effectively through personalized, thorough editing that not only makes sense but also works for you. I work with indie authors, publishers, entrepreneurs, subject matter experts with editing manuscripts, short writing, websites in fiction and narrative nonfiction. I offer the following editorial services: developmental editing (fiction only), line editing, copyediting, proofreading, and sensitivity reading. 


My editing ensures that your manuscript is consistent, clear, concise, and correct—and most importantly sounds like you (or the right persona or voice). I'm comfortable with working with corporate voices. 

Here's a bit about me. My background is education till I discovered my passion for publishing and the written word. To pursue my love of publishing, I earned a Master's in Writing: Publishing from Portland State University, Oregon where my emphasis was Rhetoric and Composition Studies and Publishing. Studying writing sharpened my editorial insight for structure and voice, so that I can offer in-depth suggestions for revisions. Rhetoric and Composition courses from grad school made me appreciate what it takes to form a story. 


I have experience as an in-house editor for a trade publishing company, Ooligan Press that published award-winning books in YA/NA, Literary, Nonfiction, Regional Interest (Pacific Northwest). I'm also currently an Associate Fiction Editor of Pangyrus. 


Though I enjoy editing a wide variety of topics, these types of manuscripts make me the best fit editor for you.
