frequently asked questions

A. Any and all – no job is too small! I specialize in editing, copyediting, proofreading, and developing engaging web and marketing copy. Some of my most common projects include: 

– Copyediting full-length manuscripts
– Developing web copy for a brand’s About page
– Editing email newsletters

A. While the vast majority of my clients fall into the equestrian industry, (as that is my horse-girl specialty), I have and absolutely will take non-equestrian-based work as well!

A. I charge a very reasonable hourly rate, with a 1-hour minimum. When inquiring, I will send over an estimate of how many billable hours I believe I’ll need to complete the project. If, during the project, the number of hours exceeds this estimate, I will contact you before proceeding further.

A. Shorter assignments may have a one to two day turnaround time. Longer ones, such as manuscripts, can usually be completed within two to three weeks. When contacted, I will be very candid about my current workload so I can set a realistic timeframe that will work for everyone.  

A. I have two English degrees: a BA from Stevenson University and an MA from Towson University. I taught Basic English Composition at the Community College of Baltimore County for several years before becoming a Proposal Writer/Manager within the staffing industry. I started my freelance career during this time to make a little extra money to help fund my horse habit! I have been horse crazy since birth, and I currently own three off-the-track Thoroughbreds. When I’m not working or riding, I am writing equestrian fiction; I have self-published four romance novels to date. *Please note that a full professional resume can be provided upon request.
