Phantom. Spook. Apparition. Whatever you want to call it, Ghost Editorial is all about staying in the shadows.

Think of me as your secret weapon – your personal Ghost Editor – someone you can call upon to clean up and streamline your text in such a way that no one would ever suspect an editor had even touched it. When you work with Ghost Editorial, you’ll collaborate with an experienced editor to ensure that even after all the copyediting, rewriting, and proofreading have been done, your ultimate vision remains firmly intact.

Ghost Editorial is excited to help you achieve your personal, business, and academic pursuits. I am proud to have helped writers publish in The New York Times, to have played a part in students being accepted to college, to have made it possible for academics to read their research in prestigious journals, and to have helped with grants being funded. With the right editor in your corner, even the simplest of texts can become something great.

Conveniently located in Rockville, Maryland, just minutes from Washington D.C. and Virginia, I am happy to personally meet with clients in the Metro D.C. area. If you’re interested in setting up an appointment to talk about your project, simply complete the contact form and we’ll set something up.  Don’t live in the area? No problem! As long as you have a telephone, computer, and internet access, we can work together.

Why Ghost Editorial?

These days, hiring an editor to review your work is just a natural part of the writing and publishing process, but it can also be overwhelming for those not familiar with copyediting. Ghost Editorial is not a large and impersonal company where you’re submitting documents online to a faceless copyeditor. In fact, Ghost Editorial is just me, which is great news for you because you can rest assured that each client and project that is undertaken is treated with exclusivity. Whenever possible, I’ll meet with you in-person to discuss your project and goals, and I’ll  communicate with you throughout the entire process to make sure you’re happy with the end result.


Ghost Editorial is just getting started, so if you had a positive experience with G.E., let me know, and then tell everyone else.  If you send some new business my way, I’ll thank you with discounted rates on your next project. I’m the boss, I can do things like that.
