Hello! I am the founder of Pens and Proof editing services for authors who are either embarking on their writing journey or have a completed manuscript. I specialize in children’s books (so fun!) and adult nonfiction, specifically “How-to” subjects that focus on relationships (improving, coping, leaving, etc.), health and wellness, and making money.
I love animals, reading, and the Oxford comma.
If you're an author with a completed manuscript or you have an idea you'd like to turn into a book, I will edit your work and/or coach you all the way from composing your outline to a completed manuscript ready for publishing.
I offer a complimentary 30-minute consultation during which we can get to know one another a bit, and I can learn more about your project.
I've had my business website for five years. I took pride in doing a decent job of writing copy for it, completely DIY. Recently a friend found some typos on my website. OMG, I knew my DIY days were over. I knew that if I wanted to project a quality brand, this meant I had to hire a professional editor. I'm so glad I engaged with Heather to help me clean up my website and fix typos, grammar, and style issues that I had missed. She's quick, responsive, and spot-on with her laser focus on what makes for great website copy. She's my go-to editor for my business.

Thank you. I was proud of what I created. What you did was a million times better.

Heather is a very skilled writer and editor with a great attention to detail. I've worked with Heather for five years, and she has always been able to provide concise and articulate content for all applications needed. From informative blogs and clever marketing campaigns, to website content and branding, there was no task she couldn't handle. She also helped me clean up and polish the copy on my personal website as well as my resume so I have a better representation of my work. I would gladly work with Heather again and recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled editor.

I worked with Heather on my video script, and she completed editing within a short amount of time. Having my script edited so quickly helped me begin shooting my introductory video that much faster. I would love to work with Heather on my future projects and would recommend her work to anyone who is looking for copywriting or editing services.
