All about me.

I am a voracious reader.

I have woken many a morning with a book hangover because I would rather read than do anything else. 

I am a reluctant writer.

While I write well, it is a painstaking process for me. I am about half way through my first solo project, and God willing and the creek don't rise, I will finish it before my next birthday. 

I am an enthusiasitc editor.

I found my calling in 2015 when I realized I wanted to help writers improve their stories. I earned my Certificate in Editing from the University of Washington and take classes often. 

My name is spelled Lynne with an E.

I am a left-handed middle child, which I say is the reason for all my peculiarities. I wooed my husband with my library card. To this day, my children never leave home without a book. 

CMOS

The Chicago Manual of Style is my bible. It lives on my bookshelf, next to my copies of the Merriam Webster dictionary and thesaurus. 

What I can do for you.

I provide a fresh eye and a professional opinion. I help authors with their characters; developing goals, motivation, and conflict. I correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. By sprinkling commas and capitals, I transform (at times) inarticulate phrases into meaningful text.
