My passion has always been reading. I love the feel and smell of a book in my hands. I have embraced eBooks for the ability to carry more than one book around. However, I do pick up and read a book every so often to remember the feel and smell.
I spend a lot of time in the summer outdoors hiking, fishing, camping, and reading in the hammock. I also enjoy skiing in the winter, traveling, the theatre, and fires in the fireplace. My favorite place is by the ocean, preferably on the beach with a book.
My pet peeve while reading is discovering errors within a book that cause disruption in the flow of the story. This irritation prompted me to return to college so I could help authors. I graduated Cum Laude from Augsburg College with a BA in English Literature, Language and Theory. I offer freelance copyediting and proofreading services at Barefoot Editing. I would be honored to help you on your publishing journey. More information is available at www.barefootediting.com.
