I have a love of communication and how we connect with each other, a thirst for the conventions of language, and an eye for detail. There’s nothing like the happiness I feel by helping someone perfect their words and then watching their confidence grow when they present their writing to readers at its best.
When not assisting a writer with a project, I love cooking, eating, gardening, and painting. One of my goals for this year is to write a children’s book. My work as an editor enables me to connect with talented writers, and the way they can craft a fascinating story inspires me to chronicle some of my best childhood memories on my grandparent’s farm. Maybe someday I will add “published writer” to my list of accomplishments.
My husband and I enjoy life on our small farm. He is a patient soul who tries to teach me, “you can’t catch fish if you are making a lot of noise,” and the finer points of rowing a boat. (How do you steer with those two oars, anyway?) I’m mother and caretaker to a flock of lovely chickens, a rather disagreeable goose, and an assortment of four-legged, furry friends.
"Susan Pierson of Fine Line Proofs is fantastic editor and proof reader. She is efficient, thorough and reasonable priced. She does not try to change your voice in what you have written. I recommend her with my most highest regards."
