Hi, I'm Angela. I live near Boston, Massachusetts. I'm a professional editor and beta reader specializing in self-published novels. I offer several services that can polish your manuscript and prepare it for publishing. I am thorough, detail-oriented, and passionate about stories. I would love to lend my expertise to your writing process.

My most-preferred genres are young adult and adult fantasy, romance, light sci-fi, thriller, paranormal, horror, mystery, speculative fiction, and general fiction. I have some special knowledge when it comes to Japanese culture, Chinese culture, tea, coffee, figure skating, travel, cooking, animals, coffee, tea, and software engineering/the tech industry.


Contact me to discuss if I would be a good fit for your project!

I primarily provide editing services for self-published authors looking to polish and refine their work. Here's what some of my clients have had to say:

"Angela went above and beyond what I expected. Her approach was perfect for my book, and for an author just starting out, I'm particularly grateful for the extra insight into self-publishing and the advice she offered."

- Loren Greene, author of Meet You By Hachiko and Edokko

"As an editor, Angela is the rare full package of being kind, skilled, reliable, and speedy. If you're looking for an editor who treats you like a human being and not just another paycheck, Angela should be your top pick."

- Diane Callahan, editor and outliner of the Savannah River series


"She's the most thorough editor I've come across and is always there to answer questions. I cannot suggest her enough."

- Maria Warren, paranormal romance author
