You have a manuscript, but you're concerned that an editor may change it too much. Have no fear. Louann is committed to polishing your writing while maintaining your voice. Regardless of the type of writing, her goal is always to ensure that the manuscript reflects the best of the author's ability and unique voice. Furthermore, she takes a collaborative approach to improving the manuscript. She sees the editing process as a collaboration with the author in which she acts as a bridge between the author and the reader. She'll bring to your manuscript a fresh, detail-oriented pair of eyes, clear judgment, and objectivity. Let her eagle eyes complement your creativity!

Louann's former career was in business, finance, and economics and included significant writing and editing, but she's always loved reading and language. When the opportunity arose, she obtained a specialized copyediting certification and launched a freelance copyediting career. Personally, her favorite genres to read are science fiction & fantasy and mystery. Because she loves language and has this eclectic combination of background and interests, she can copyedit a wide range of materials -- everything from time-travel romances to company press releases to academic journal articles.
