I’m passionate about excellent writing–it’s all I want to create, and it’s all I want to read. If you have writing you want perfected before you share it with the world, I’d love to help you create your best copy. I love working with individuals, small businesses, and corporations, and I bring a keen eye and a creative mind to every project.
Why hire me?
I have 13 years of experience as a professional editor, copy editor, proofreader, and writer (including creative nonfiction, copy writing, and ghostwriting). And I have an English degree with a concentration in technical and professional writing and editing, which is a fancy way of saying I’m a certified nerd.
What can I do for you?

- Copy editing/proofreading: fiction and non-fiction book manuscripts, articles, and other publications; technical, professional, and academic documents and publications; web copy and digital marketing
- Writing: special interest articles; copy writing for various industries and media, including web copy and digital marketing; ghostwriting
- Consulting/speaking: writing workshops/seminars; business consultation for writing, editing, and communications needs; book readings and author-led group discussions; topical speaking engagements
“Tamára is masterful in the art of capturing the precise tone and style called for by each writing project. And she combines that skill with a generous heart and genuine passion, bringing a spark of humanity to her words.” –Justin Shumaker, Copywriter
“Tamara has an editor’s eye and ear. She is one of the best I’ve met when it comes to capturing individual voices in writing and editing multiple writers’ work into one single, consistent voice. She’s more than an editor, though. Her storytelling is powerful and emotional, and she can put together a wide range of content from catchy slogans to technical reports. Having her on my team was a tremendous asset.” –Joy Bennett, Marketing & Communications Consultant
“The work Tamára did on my book The Day the Angels Fell was crucial. She was a kind and encouraging editor, and I hate to think about releasing the book without incorporating her changes and suggestions.” –Shawn Smucker, Author
“I’m grateful to have had Tamára copy edit God Made Light. I could trust her expertise in grammar, punctuation, and mechanics to bring technical accuracy and consistency to the book so that what stands out is its message.” –Matthew Paul Turner, Author
“Three weeks before the deadline of my novel Every Shattered Thing, my editor quit halfway through the manuscript because of a personal emergency. Tamára stepped in, read my manuscript and provided the quickest turn-around imaginable. Her comments and insight saved my novel.” –Elora Ramirez, Author
