About Gail

I love words--the way they sound, the way they work together to convey ideas, the challenge of finding just the right one to express a thought. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in English, I taught English for ten years and shared my love of words with eighth graders. My favorite part was helping students work on grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills.

Now I am a freelance editor and writer. My editing projects cover a wide variety of subjects; my favorites are biography/memoir, education, history, and sports. I help authors fix grammar mistakes, clarify their ideas, and make their books enjoyable to read. I have also written six nonfiction books for grades 3-6 and one informational text for high school athletes.

Contact me for help with all things related to English, grammar, and writing. I look forward to hearing from you!
