I’m an experienced freelance Certified Copy Editor and Proofreader currently living in Elmira, New York–the city famous for the writings of the great Mark Twain. A perfectionist by nature, discovering errors has always come naturally to me. In fact, recognizing mistakes in road signs, restaurant menus, billboards, or newspapers often drives my husband and friends crazy! Inaccuracies seem to flash at me like a neon sign.
I’ve edited a multitude of works for authors, and I’m extremely honored to have edited numerous books for Donna Mabry, who has made the Best-Seller List for her book, Maude. One of my other clients, Vital Germaine, is a Top-Selling Author on Amazon for his book, Flying Without A Net. I’ve also recently edited Glimmer, a young adult novel by multi-award-winning romance writer Tricia Cerrone, as well as a project for THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY.
I’m very proud of the close working relationship I’ve developed with all of my clients. My meticulous attention to detail, quick turnaround time, proficiency in identifying errors (including errors that others have missed), and my ability to detect when a story line drifts off course, or when incorrect character names are used, have established my reputation of truly caring about my clients' work.
“Her meticulous attention to detail is unparalleled. When I send her work that I think is almost perfect, she always manages to find more errors than I ever thought could be there. Joyce has polished many of my novels identifying numerous errors that others, including myself, previously missed. I COULDN’T PUBLISH WITHOUT HER!”

Joyce Mochrie, Owner
I’ve been involved in editing–one way or another–since being appointed Editor-in-Chief of my high school newspaper. My love and flair for editing led me to become certified in this field. While living in Las Vegas, Nevada, I was employed by Boyd Gaming Corporation in the Marketing Department for 14 years, editing and proofing marketing projects of all sizes.
With my husband working as a professional chauffeur–and having no children– every project I work on, whether it be small or large, is given my full and undivided attention and focus. It’s very important to me personally that every client be completely satisfied.
