More About Kathy
I moved from Los Angeles to the rural resort area of Door County, WI, 12 years ago and have greatly enjoyed freelance editing. My experience includes being Exec. Editor of a national consumer magazine and two beauty industry trade magazines (including a German/UK version). I've edited fiction/nonfiction books, written everything from Springsteen concert reviews to Congressional testimony, and I worked for actor/activist Ed Asner for 18 years as his speechwriter and VP of Development. I have expertise in all writing styles (including MLA, APA, AP, Chicago, CSE, AMA, British English, Harvard referencing, etc.) and specialize in ESL clients.
What types of documents do you enjoy editing the most?
I'm partial to medical documents because I've always been interested in medicine and science. I truly enjoy working on longer projects, such as theses and dissertations, where you can watch the entire paper take shape (and learn something along the way, too).
In what subject areas are you an expert?
I know quite a bit about a number of subjects, but I don't claim to be an expert in any specific area. One important quality in an editor is research - if I don't know something, I do know how to find it!
What do you do when you’re not editing on Kibin?
Living in a resort area, there's always plenty to do. Our peninsula (the "thumb" of Wisconsin) has more coastline, more lighthouses, and more acres of state parks than any county in the country. I work part-time at my church and am involved with village committees. I've always loved cats and currently have six "fur children" who oversee my work daily.

Client Feedback and Praise
Great editing. Thanks!
Thank you for your help!
Hi, Thank you very much for editing. Your comment is very useful to me to improve my writing. Kind regards, Pat : )
Thank you so much for your feedback! It really helped me to cut off some words and to correct my mistakes. I have a last question for you about citation. In my second paragraph, I talk about websites broadcasting obscene images. Should I cite it ? (Indirect citation ?) Also, I talk about creatures (pigoons and ChickiNobs) that have been invented by the author, should I cite them? Should I put the page number when they were first mentioned? I thought I should not cite any indirect citations, because it is obvious that it is from this book and that my teacher knows what I am talking about, but I am not sure.... Thank you again!!!
