My students call me Mrs. O. A school librarian by day and an editor by night, I have more than 20 years of experience as a media specialist and a language arts teacher. I have reviewed books online and for professional journals for several years, and now I freelance as an editor and proofreader. I love words. I love reading them, I love writing them, I love helping authors polish their words so they can connect with the right readers, and I love guiding librarians to connect their patrons to “just right” books.
The right book can change a reader’s life, but a great message can get lost when it contains errors or lacks clarity. I can help you polish your words before you launch them into the world.
Are you an author with a great message? A teacher creating great materials or content? I can help you polish your work before the rest of the world sees it. You will find more information and my general rates here. Contact me for a complimentary discovery call to see if we would make a good team.
Maybe you’re a librarian or media specialist? I recommend books to elementary and middle grade students every day of the school year. I know what students like to read and work hard to match their interests and reading ability with good books. Leave your email address for the occasional newsletter about my new reviews and tips. You can find my reviews here or on Instagram or Goodreads. Whether you are an author, educator, or librarian, I can help you stay current with the latest youth book trends. Just sign up for my monthly “Hot Reads” newsletter. And if you want me to do a videoconference especially with teachers in your school, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make it happen!
