Hello all! My name is Linda Clark, the owner of A Writer's Friend Editing Service. I love to proofread and edit all kinds of documents! Call me a word nerd if you must, but I am the person you want to make your document as perfect as it can be.
I have edited and proofread children's, young adult and adult fiction books, as well as short nonfiction articles, full-length texts and academic and business documents. My clients have included students, first-time authors, experienced writers, and small business owners. They are both native and non-native English speakers. I do use reference works such as the Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam Webster's Dictionary to check myself when working, but I always read every word of text to make sure that if edits are necessary, the voice of the author is maintained.
I am very proud of my work and of the contributions that I made to these projects. The saying "do what you love, and you will never work a day in your life" certainly applies to my attitude toward my work in this field.
On a personal note, I am a retired teacher who can now spend more time with two beautiful granddaughters and travel to warm beaches with my special someone. I love to read for fun even when I’m not proofreading, to take bike rides on rail trails, to paddle down scenic waterways in a kayak, and to try out lots of different recipes in my kitchen.
