Delivering the Ideal Ingredients to Your Writing
Editing cookbooks is my expertise. I excel in understanding how a recipe should read and be communicated to the cook. It brings me joy to make sure every detail of a recipe is accurate, ensuring the end-product is exemplary and my clients are happy.
As an editor, I provide editing (copyediting, line editing, recipe formatting), proofreading, and indexing services. My primary focus is cookbooks, having both edited and indexed multiple projects. In addition, I have written inspirational back cover for my clients.
I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist that spent decades working in a customer-service oriented business and geek out making sure every detail of a cookbook is grammatically correct, indexed properly, and easy for the novice chef to follow. My strengths include attention to detail, consistency, organization, efficiency, and dependability. Attention to detail and consistency are important skills in creating a recipe that even the novice cook can understand. A recent review of my cookbook by US Book Reviews stated: “The author explains her recipes in an easy-to-understand style that makes intimidating recipes ... seem easy.”
As a former grocery store owner, deli operator, and food manufacturer, I now can include food columnist and award-winning cookbook author to my 35 years’ experience in recipe creation, development, and formatting. The result: perfection in the technical execution of recipe writing.
I would be honored to work with you and your book.
