Helping you choose the right words.

If you want people to read—and finish—your book or article these days, you’ll need to make sure it stands out from the rest. One way to ensure this is to get it in the best possible shape. That’s where I come in.

I want to help people who may not consider themselves a writer tell their stories.

Who You Are

My clients are new authors, seasoned writers, professionals, entrepreneurs, academic researchers, retirees, publishing houses, publishing services, and people who’ve finally decided to write that book they’ve always wanted to write.

  • Maybe you’re writing a book to help your business clients.
  • Or you want to present your research, projects, or ideas to a larger audience.
  • Or you want to share your life story with others who have gone through similar journeys.
  • You might be going the route of self-publishing or traditional publishing.

Either way, you have a story to tell, and you’d like some help making it the best possible version it can be.

How I Can Help You

I’d like to help. I’ve helped countless authors of nonfiction books, journal articles, blog posts, and other various print material make sure their messages come across in the most clear and concise way while still meeting their deadlines and staying on budget.


Carrick Editorial was started as a way to help authors get their work ready for publishing.


I specialize in copyediting and proofreading nonfiction manuscripts, articles, business documents, and branding projects.
