I'm Angie McCauley

I help writers communicate with readers clearly and effectively so their books are ready for publishing, their business documents and presentations are ready to work for them, and their academic papers are ready for submission and acceptance.


I especially enjoy working with cookbooks, how-to books, and education, parenting, fitness, health, business, technical, and Christian nonfiction subject matter.

Before becoming an editor, I wrote and taught technical courses at IBM, homeschooled my children, served on the board of a private Christian school, and did various kinds of volunteer work. These experiences gave me an excellent grounding in the logical thinking, clear communication, and attention to detail I now use every day as an editor.

I love to help writers eliminate issues that can distract readers, so their ideas can shine through. Let me handle the language issues so you can focus on your ideas!
