Prior to becoming a full-time author, I worked as a print journalist for newspapers and magazines. That experience plus my fiction work writing for multiple publishers has led to a lot of experience with editing copy. I have used that experience to line edit and critique for fellow authors. I also have line edited for publisher Thomas Nelson.
