Per the tutorial, this page is meant to be “about me.” Alright then, here goes…
My name is Kristin Wilson, and I live with my husband, two children and various pets in Las Vegas, Nevada. And before you ask, the answer is yes, people do actually live here. 🙂
I knew I wanted to study English and Literature even prior to starting high school, and obtained a B.A. in English from U.N.L.V. I have always loved to read and write, and consider my tastes in reading to be rather eclectic. I love anything from romances (especially Christmas ones!) to hard-core Science Fiction to fantasy to paranormal to mysteries to graphic novels to biographies to user manuals. I really do love it all! My writing tends to lend itself to the paranormal romance or fantasy side I’ve noticed, although I like to write for children too.
I have been doing free-lance editing and writing since 2004. Although, prior to this, I did quite a bit of informal editing for friends, family and the workplace. I have edited a number of short stories and a novel mostly in the genres of horror, romance and young adult; I’ve also worked on short biographies, resumes, and business letters and documents.
But to get to the “nuts and bolts” of it, I have been thinking about offering up some quick tips on grammar and usage for a while now. With the advent of the internet, and the popularity of blogs, I have noticed some of the same errors time and time again. I hope to offer easy tips to remember proper usage.
If you’re an author, it is always a good idea to have your writing edited prior to submitting, and absolutely prior to self-publishing your work. I am happy to offer either a few pages or a couple of chapters of editing done for free to see if you like my style of work. And yes, there is a style to editing. I do not just check for grammar and spelling, but for flow, content and style as well.
