As the author of four novels from major publishers and with more than 18 years of freelance editing experience, I bring passion, compassion, and a highly trained eye to my clients’ projects, helping to make their writing and publishing dreams come true. My specialty in editing is fiction, all styles and genres, but I am equally comfortable with nonfiction, especially narrative nonfiction, memoir, how-to, history, sports, true crime, psychology, and popular culture. My other areas of editing expertise are query letters for literary agents and editors, manuscript synopses, nonfiction book proposals, business proposals, and keynote speeches. I am also highly experienced in editing graduate school and other application essays and personal statements. I know what it takes to get published today because I have received my share of rejection letters, along with great success. My two most recent novels are DEAR MR. CARSON, published by The Permanent Press in New York in 2006, and THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF MISS TRANBY QUIRKE, first published in England by Virago Press in 1996 and published for the first time in the U.S. by Bold Strokes Books in New York in 2009. My educational background includes a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University and a master’s degree in creative writing from The University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, where I studied under former Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion. In 1994 I received a Hawthornden Fellowship to Hawthornden Castle in Lasswade, Scotland, and in 2011 I received a Literary Artist Fellowship from The Wisconsin Arts Board.

I must say that I am truly indebted to the editor, who has supported me for many of my different pieces of writing work from personal stories to academic work over a year. To be honest, I had received help from different editors throughout my life on different websites, school, my working places, or even within this servicescape site and I can assure you that this editor is the best I have had so far. She is very attentive to your request and will go beyond the simple editing work. I have developed a sense of trust as a person to person. I will keep asking her help and thankful for her time. This is why I am breaking my life rule, which is not to comment publicly on the internet, to let others know that she will be the best editor. Thank you

Elizabeth really pays attention to detail. Whether it's the setting, dialogue, characters gestures, responses or reactions to each other, she has feel for authenticity. If something doesn't seem natural and genuine, Elizabeth picks it up. I appreciate an editor who reads a book from a readers perspective and a technical one. I'm growing as a writer.

I went to the writing center at my University to check my personal of a statement, but all what they did is correcting the grammar mistakes. Therefore, I have decided to register at this website and hire WritersMidwife to edit my paper. Literally, she is the best in editing. She had deleted unnecessary sentences and added several new sentences to make my essay looks better.

I am quite glad that Elizabeth edited my novella. Her copyediting, grammar, and organizational revisions are superb. And she provided clear, concise suggestions about how to make my story stronger. I will incorporate all of her advice into my final draft. Elizabeth's notes are kind and supportive but direct, and she delivered very quickly. I will definitely try to use Elizabeth again for future work. Thank you!
