A Professional Writer / Editor with Extensive Background in Graduate Studies

I'm a rather ordinary woman with an extensive background in graduate studies and, more important, in professional writing and editing. In fact, I've been a professional writer/editor for over 20 years now, ever since I decided to quit my job as a professor and devote my time to writing and editing.

Where do you live, Rose?

I live on the East Coast of the United States, where I was born and raised. I'm a native English speaker and have devoted most of my life to "bookish" pursuits, all of which tend to keep me close to home.

What is your attitude toward work? What sort of work ethic do you have?

I've been told more than once that I work too much, but you know the old saying: It isn't work if you do what you love! I've been fortunate enough to be able to do what I love on a professional level (that is to say, read, write, and revise). I love a good challenge when it comes to the written word; it can feel like my birthday when I receive a manuscript in need of a large amount of work.

However, I do know that my job as a professional writer/editor requires more than the actual work itself. I keep in close touch with my clients and respond to questions and concerns in a timely fashion. I believe very strongly in the importance of keeping my word as a professional. That usually means I'm at my desk more hours than I am not. It also means that I work seven days a week (except of course for emergencies).

I guess it's fair to say I work almost all the time, but I love what I do, so it's a good life.

What do you count as your professional successes and failures?

I'll address the failures first, because it's easy: I don't have any. That doesn't mean I haven't made a royal mess of my fair share of situations; rather, it means that I've learned from my mistakes and missteps, because I firmly believe that they are learning experiences. We all make errors in life. What matters is what we do with them - whether or not we learn from them.

I count among my successes the fact that I earned my PhD in sociology, as it took a tremendous amount of work both in and out of the school setting to make it happen. I acquired skills and knowledge in both qualitative and quantitative areas of study, and use what I learned on a daily basis.

It might sound contradictory, but one of my most successful decisions was to leave academia in pursuit of a freelance career as a professional writer and editor. I love making my own schedule, meeting people from all over the world who seek my services, and diving into one manuscript after another.

I also love learning, and this career gives me the chance to learn all sorts of things! I write and edit in virtually every field. On the rare occasions I encounter a document or writing brief that's beyond my skill set, I have colleagues to whom I can refer the work. That, too, I count as a success - having professional colleagues and friends who can assist me every now and then. (Of course, I would never do so without my clients' permission.)

What else should we know about you?

I am a seasoned professional in a field that can be cut-throat. I have lasted over 20 years in this line of work, partly by being honest and direct, and partly because I do exceptional work. Put simply, I am one of the best in the business, and look forward to assisting clients well into the future.

Other than that, I'm not sure what to say, but please feel free to contact me directly if you have other questions!
