Hello! I'm Jules.

I have fifteen years of experience editing for advertising and publishing clients; I provide exceptional accuracy on tight timelines and high-profile projects. My clients include Miami University, Relegation Books, Stillhouse Press, Forbes, Procter & Gamble, The Kroger Co., Abbott Laboratories, Conagra Brands, The Ohio Lottery, and many more.

 

My advertising editing and proofreading experience spans everything from reviewing reports on how blockchain and machine learning are affecting the loyalty marketing industry to editing a diaper decoder that explains why a baby might produce a color and texture of...well, you likely dont want the specifics, but I can assure you the descriptions were punctuated and spelled correctly. If it has words on it, theres a good chance Ive edited something like it. 

For my book editing clients: As an agented YA writer and a parent, I’m interested in a wide range of topics that affect today’s kids, tweens and teens, from external factors like our ever-changing political climate to internal concerns like first love, personal aspirations, and peer and family relationships. If you’re writing for kids, you’re writing for our future. I’m committed to helping you share your message and voice as clearly and effectively as possible.
 

In addition to writing, I’m also a photographer and visual artist. I live in Cincinnati with my kid, my partner, a big pack of rescue dogs with varying disabilities, and more books than one house should reasonably contain. I love staying active with trail running, weight lifting, biking, and obstacle course racing (OCR). In 2016, I competed in the OCR World Championships with my brother, who is an American Ninja Warrior finalist (watch for the guy with the big spray-painted beard).

You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others whats burning inside you, and we edit to let the fire show through the smoke.
