I’m Eleanore.


Thanks to my family and various librarians, I grew up surrounded by stories. I walked through Avonlea with Anne, visited Wonderland with Alice, and went through the wardrobe with the Pevensie siblings before I’d hit double digits.

Through reading I gained a love of writing.  But it wasn’t until high school – when I entered writing classes and workshops for the first time – that I discovered that I have a passion for editing and working with other writers.

I am getting my Certificate in Editing and Publishing from UCLA and I have a Copyediting Certificate from Writer’s Digest. I’m committed to being a lifelong learner and keeping my skills up to date. I have a shelf dedicated to my favorite books on writing craft and I’m always ready to try new classes.

My editing style focuses on clarity, consistency, and keeping your creative voice. When you submit your manuscript you can feel assured I will read it throughly and handle it with care and dedication. Communication is my priority, and I welcome any questions you may have – before, during, or after the editing process.

When I’m not writing or editing fiction, I’m caring for my many house plants, sifting through vintage photos, or spending time with my adorable golden retrievers, Nana and Rosie, in my home state of Illinois.
