Professional Book Editor
Hi. I’m Jennifer, a professional book editor based in Portland, Oregon.
For the past 13 years, I’ve been working with authors and publishers to produce
high-quality books. I’m the founder of Cypress Editing and a collaborative editor with Indigo: Editing, Design, and More.
Before starting my freelance career, I worked on in-house editorial teams as a production editor, copyeditor, and managing editor. As an independent editor, I apply my years of industry experience and passion for books to every project, helping writers feel confident in their success.
When I'm out of the office, you can find me chasing sunsets and summits in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
Freelancing has given me the opportunity to broaden my experience by working with many different publishers and types of content.
I’ve edited everything from novels, memoirs, journal articles, and children’s books to textbooks and digital course materials.
“I have to say you did an amazing job with this manuscript. I wanted to tell you again how much I appreciate your fine work. You adapted to my writing style and helped make it flow smoother. I am amazed at how you found the exact places to tweak. Really stunning high-level work!”
—T. F. Allen, author of The Keeper and The Night Janitor
“I very much enjoyed working through your edits. What fun to see the book tighten up. Always impossible to wrap my mind around the sheer number of mistakes I make. So delighted and grateful that you’re there to catch me. Great job, Jenn! I’ll be back.”
—Rich Leder, author of Emboozlement
