I enjoy any project, big or small. I have proofread and edited everything from websites, blog posts, and academic papers to e-books, full-length novels, and scripts. I am happy to do straightforward proofreading, catching errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. I also enjoy in-depth editing, where I improve readability, restructure sentences when necessary, and offer suggestions/feedback to improve flow, logic, etc.
I’m Nancy Haight
I began teaching high school English and ESL in 2002. I worked at a boarding school and my beloved students came from all over the globe. After teaching, I dove into the world of professional editing. For five years, I worked as the managing editor for an international childbirth magazine. In 2014, I worked as an ebook proofer for a major Christian publishing house, but then I realized spending hours inside a large building and editing inside a tiny cubicle was not for me. In 2014, I started branching out and offering freelance services.
It probably comes as no surprise that I love to read and write. When I am not spotting errors or enjoying a book, I breathe in the fresh air of the Pacific Northwest, where I live with my two daughters, backyard chickens, and our Havanese pup named Dottie. Rainy days, green grass, and fresh eggs are common joys in my world.
Cups of Tea
“I’ve been trained in this field and have worked for magazines and publishing houses. You will be hiring a true professional. Plus, I sincerely love what I do!”
I have completed over 6,000 projects, many of which were full-length novels and ebooks of various genres (self-help, health, business, cooking, spirituality, etc.). I work from home, at coffee houses, and even during my daughters’ ballet and gymnastics classes (no more tiny cubicles for me!).
I love what I do! You will not only be hiring a professional editor (I have over 3500 five-star reviews), but you will also be hiring someone who enjoys this kind of work immensely and will truly put thought, time, and effort into your project.
