"Not only did you do a great and professional job, but you went beyond the call of duty to help me."
Hi! I'm Roberta and I am an avid reader with a rather eclectic taste in literature (just like my mother!). I enjoy Christian literature—fiction and non-fiction—as well as cozy mysteries, historical fiction, stories about the power of friendship, and stories that make me laugh. I also love children’s literature! Reading stories aloud for young audiences is one of my favorite pastimes.
Prior to becoming an editor I worked for fifteen years as an Instructional Assistant in Special Education—Pre-K through post high school. I also enjoyed eleven years as a homeschool mom. I am a Christian and I’ve been studying the Bible for over thirty-five years.
I am a graduate of two courses by Edit Republic: The Art of Line Editing, and High-level Copyediting and Proofreading Pro. I am a stickler when it comes to correctness, consistency, and clarity in written work of all kinds. I can help to ensure the project you’ve labored over is presented as you intend—a published piece you can be proud of!
Take a look at the services I offer then fill out the form below and let's see if we're a good fit. I also offer a free sample edit.
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
Thank You Roberta!
Roberta was encouraging, responsive, diligent, and easy to work with while in the editing process of my book. She repaired grammar, spelling mistakes, and offered suggestions to keep my manuscript fluent and clear for the reader, while still keeping my “free” style of writing intact.
Roberta not only made the editing of my book “bearable,” but I was able to confidently convert and submit a very rough draft of my manuscript back to my publisher as a polished, professional, edited version of my book.

Complimented My Work
I thoroughly enjoyed having Roberta edit my story, she understood what I was saying and complimented my work.
What writer doesn’t like to feel encouraged when a returned manuscript isn’t full of red lines?
I look forward to working with her again.
Thank you, Roberta.

I Appreciated All of Your Comments
I loved working with Roberta. She was kind, helpful, equipped, prompt, and, well, just everything you'd want in an editor/proofreader. I especially loved the clean copy she offered me and her genuine care and communication regarding my work. I highly recommend her for your next WIP.

the Call of Duty
I was so fortunate and blessed to find Roberta at the right time, when I needed an editor and proofreader for my manuscript before it went into printing to meet a deadline. Not only did she do a great and professional job, but she went beyond the call of duty to help me. For that, I will be forever indebted to her.

Help With My Memoir
When I ventured out in writing a memoir about our family’s journey in providing care for children and families in crisis through foster care, I asked Roberta if she would read it and give me her honest opinion.
I was pleased with the work she did editing, proofreading , and making suggestions on my memoir. I was also impressed with the timely manner in which she completed the work. I felt very comfortable, humbled as I know I have poor language arts skills, but my eyes were opened gently by Roberta!
I recommend using Roberta for your editorial needs.

I can't say enough about how Roberta helped me with my book. She was very attentive, answered all my questions, and made my writing so much stronger. The greatest value she brought was her knowledge of the Bible, and her meticulous editing ensured my references were correct and helped me clarify my message. I loved our prayer times. 100% recommend her services.
