Adirondack Editing consists of nine capable women—including seven copy editors and one proofreader—with varying experience in terms of materials edited and length of time freelancing.
Susan Uttendorfsky, owner, book editor, and editorial manager, started Adirondack Editing in 2011 and has over 35 years’ experience in writing and editing.
Danielle Arbuckle, Cheryl Lowrance, Abby Marshall-Jaworski, Stephanie Marshall Ward, Heath Sledge, and Julie Willson, experienced copy editors, have worked for many years on different kinds of text: dissertations, novels, journal articles, marketing materials, tax planning materials, cookbooks, websites...
Anne-Marie Emerson McDonald is our excellent, well-trained proofreader, who has also worked on a myriad of material.
In addition, clerical assistance for and between the editors is provided by an administrative assistant.
Collectively (like the Borg*), our qualifications include a law degree, a PhD in English literature, a B.Sc. (Honors) in mathematics, two BAs in psychology, a BA in law and society, a BA in political science with a minor in English, a master's in rehabilitation counseling, and many editing courses and continuing education classes, both currently ongoing and completed.
We all hold multiple memberships in various editorial organizations. We’ve edited almost 450 fiction and non-fiction books for customers in over 26 countries, and the 148 genres/categories we’ve covered are listed below.**
With multiple professional editors on board, Adirondack Editing is positioned to schedule your edit today!
*We have to admit that two of us didn’t know who the Borg are. If you’re contacting us about a science fiction edit, you may guess one name. If she is indeed not a Trekkie, we'll give you $100 off any edit totaling more than $500!
