About the Author:

Louann’s former career was in business, finance, and economics, but she’s always loved reading and language. . . so she obtained a specialized copyediting certification and launched a freelance copyediting career. Personally, her favorite genres to read are science fiction & fantasy and mystery. Because she loves language and has this eclectic combination of background and interests, she can copyedit a wide range of materials—everything from academic journal articles to company press releases to time-travel romances.

Regardless of the type of writing, her goal is always to ensure that the manuscript reflects the best of the author’s ability and unique voice. She sees the editing process as a collaboration in which she acts as a bridge between the author and the reader.
