Testimonials

I pride myself on building personal relationships with my clients. The connection between writer and editor should be a collaboration, not just a wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am! Whether it’s through email or messaging, regular communication ensures that I know exactly what you expect and helps me understand what you want to accomplish with your story and, ultimately, help you grow your career as an author.

Background and Influences

     I have a Bachelor’s degree in English from Birmingham-Southern College and copyediting is my passion. I work quickly, but that’s mostly because I have been an avid reader my whole life and I just read really fast. I was a copyeditor and layout editor for my school’s newsletter back in college, and I’ve been helping people edit papers, resumes, emails, and the like for years.

   As a kid, I read pretty much whatever I could get my hands on. We had a small room lined with bookshelves in our house that we called the Library, and it was full of fantasy and sci-fi novels. I started with the Oz books, then Narnia, the Time Quartet (Madeline L’engle’s A Wrinkle in Time etc), Piers Anthony’s Xanth series, Robert Aspirin’s Myth series, Anne Mcaffrey’s Pern and Rowan series, Asimov’s Robot Novels and Foundation series, Mercedes Lackey’s Valdemar books (and later the Tales of the Five Hundred Kingdoms)… the list goes on and on.

     In more recent years, I’ve enjoyed the In Her Name books by Michael R. Hicks, Elizabeth Hunter’s Elemental series, Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series, C.L. Wilson’s Tairen Soul books, and pretty much everything Jeff Wheeler writes, starting with Muirwood. I will often get the first book in a series free on my kindle, then end up buying the rest of it! (I occasionally subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, but because I like to go back and read things over again, it’s not always practical.)

Michaeli lives in Harvest, Alabama with her fiance, Mark. They have two cats, Henry and Louise, and live the quiet and satisfying lives of two nerdy introverts. In her spare time, Michaeli enjoys playing the piano, singing, playing JRPGs, Tabletop gaming, and (of course) reading.
