Catholic Book Editors
Book Editor and Proofreader - Christian Fiction and Nonfiction
I’m a copy editor and developmental editor with 15 years experience in publishing. I specialize in religious-themed books, and I have expertise in the beliefs and practices of many Christian denominations and faith expressions.
Much of my background is with books about the Amish, Mennonites, and other so-called Plain or Old Order groups. My knowledge base also extends to Catholicism and the mainstream Protestant denominations. Besides religion, my interests as an editor include history, music, and current events. I have edited fiction and nonfiction for religious publishers, as well as trade books for general interest mainstream publishers.
