About Melanie

More than ten years of combined work & study experience in writing, reading & editing—working for you.

I have many years of background studying the theory and practice of reading, writing, and editing, and real-world experience as an educator, writer, editor, and proofreader working with clients including self-publishing authors, academics, and businesses. 

Special Interests

A little more about melanie…

Writing & editing follows my ventures in academia & education, where I studied, taught, and coached literature & writing. I have additional experience working in corporate atmospheres, indie book & clothing stores, and pet care.  

Along the way, as I developed my niche as a freelancer while pursuing diverse interests, I defined my focus subjects as arts & culture, sustainability,  eco-consumerism, contemporary spirituality, and holistic health.  I’m an advocate for animal welfare and rescue pets.

I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States, and work with people and organizations around the globe.

Growing a culture requires a good storyteller. Changing a culture requires a good editor.
