ProofMemoI’ve been working as an editor for twenty-seven years, moonlighting as a freelance copyeditor for most of that time—my editing company is called Three Trees Editorial.

To date, I’ve copyedited more than 165 books for a number of university presses, including Georgia, Trinity, Oklahoma, and Princeton, plus two journals: Victorian Literature and Culture (Cambridge University Press) and Technology and Culture (Society for the History of Technology). Here are some of the books I’ve most enjoyed working on and seeing the end result.
