LISANNE COOPER, (Freelance Editor)
I started life as a reader, devouring everything I could find from a wide variety of genres. From there, I naturally progressed to writing, and from there, editing. Editing is something I feel strongly about and enjoy immensely. Call me crazy, but I just love being a grammar nerd!
I was employed as a paralegal for 17 years before becoming a freelance editor. This helped me develop a critical eye and the ability to spot the inconsistencies and pitfalls that might cause your reader to lose their focus and suspension-of-disbelief.
I’ll work with you to create believable dialog, well-crafted scenes and consistent character POVs and ensure that your voice shines through.
My poetry, short stories and nonfiction have all won awards, so I know what works and what doesn’t. I do a complete edit, including line edits, with copious notes and comments. If requested, I can also provide you with an overall critique of your manuscript.
I am also the author of four novels, so I understand how eager you will be to get your manuscript back. I strive to complete each project in a timely manner. When not editing for you, my writing partner, Xena, and I (see picture) spend our time reading, writing and talking to other writers. Aaahh, the good life!
