Editing and Proofreading


Are you looking for an editor or a proofreader? I can help. I’ve had clients in many genres including fantasy, steampunk, children’s, memoir, horror, and romance. About the only thing I won’t tackle is erotica. Send me a message for my rates.

Here’s what one of my awesome clients recently said about working with me:

“Debbie is an excellent editor! She did a wonderful job on my picture books and chapter books for children. Her suggestions were constructive and greatly improved the quality of my books. Her turn-around time was commendable. I would definitely recommend Debbie and would love to hire her again for my future projects.”

Here are some of the published books I have edited over the last few years. All of them are awesome. Seriously check out some of these stories. You won’t be disappointed.


Awesome epic fantasy that you’ll lose yourself in and a wonderful author to work with. Be sure to start with book 1 of the series, Blood and Bane.


More epic fantasy here that was oodles of fun to edit.

“Demonality blends magic, adventure, love, sex, colourful language, and even a little comedy into a fun and unique fantasy story.”


Aoife & Demon – Rise of the Syhlain – Shamila Ghyas & Humeira Kazmi,

I adored working with Shamila and Humeira polishing this epic fantasy that began with the SIBA award winning Cursed by the Syhlain.

Revenge and Machinery by Victoria L. Szulc

This steampunk tale is oodles of fun. Start with book 1 – Strax and the Widow.

Or maybe you prefer vampires. I had so much fun editing Victoria’s vampire tales in The First Ten Bites. I’m sure you’ll love them too.



I also love working with children’s picture book authors, like Tina Wijesiri who also drew the pictures for some of my titles.

This adorable little story of three hedgehogs is now available on Amazon.


Or P. Tomar, whose story features two curious elephants, Babu and Bina, and their encounter with a ghostly maharajah.

Available on Amazon in print and ebook.



Sixteen Days by Rebekah Dodson

How about a little contemporary romance? This should fit the bill.

Sins of the Past  and  Sins of the Future

And our newest edition to the Sins of Time series, Sins of the Gods.

Or maybe horror’s your thing. I loved working with all the amazing authors in these two collections of the macabre and have a story of my own in each of these.

How about a little non-fiction?

Pieces of the Puzzle – Elizabeth Biermann

This powerful memoir is sometimes a tough read. I applaud Elizabeth for writing it and was honored to work as her editor.

Mom & Me – A to Z – by Kelli Evangeline O’Shea and  Janelle Evangeline Grooms

This special collection of inspirational messages from mother to daughter and daughter to mother was a joy to work on and would make an wonderful gift for a mother or a child.
