Editing And Writing Services

Whether it’s publishing houses or independent authors, books or brochures, my writing and editing foundation is the same: a guarantee of quality and cooperation. You’ve done the work—now make sure your finished product reflects your efforts. Using your voice and content, together we can tailor your ideas and hone your message so your clearest words reach your broadest audience. Simply put, it’s about communication and collaboration, between you and your clients and between you and me.



I won’t outsource any assignments, so when you contract me, you work with me. I never compromise quality for time; I am attentive to detail and a meticulous researcher—and I will meet realistic deadlines that accommodate your schedule. I look to build repeat business and long-term relationships with my clients, so I strive for open communication about all aspects of the work. For me, every project is a collaboration.



Nancy is a gifted editor and proofreader of fiction, as well as an engaging and talented non-fiction writer. In her role as editor, I worked with Nancy on two fiction novellas translated from the Chinese. Nancy’s contributions to both works undoubtedly ironed out any consistencies in the titles’ style and voice, as well as made them more accessible to the English-language reader. Nancy is a professional who never misses a deadline, catches grammatical errors with surgical precision and possesses excellent editorial judgement. I would highly recommend Nancy’s editorial services to all individuals and companies looking for a certified expert to work on any written copy.
— Anya Goncharova, Editor at Penguin Random House North Asia
I worked with Nancy on several publications that the China country office of the United Nations Development Programme produced over the course of last year. In her capacity as the copyeditor of the publications, Nancy has demonstrated exceptional professionalism. She is very detail-oriented and possesses strong communication skills. In particular, she is very responsive and communicates in a timely manner, which makes it very easy to work with her. Nancy delivered high-quality products while working on time-sensitive assignments, which proved to be of great use to our work at UNDP. I have no hesitation in recommending her to others who seek to work with an outstanding copyeditor.
— Jackie Hoi Wai Cheng, associate economic affairs officer at United Nations
Nancy is one of the most hard working and diligent writers and editors I have had the pleasure of working with. She has great ideas, an ability to provide fast, in-depth research and has an incredible eye for detail. I have asked Nancy to work with me on a number of projects over the decade I have known her, as she is one of the most reliable and consistently quality publishing professionals around.
— Tom Pattinson, media consultant and producer of content marketing
Nancy is a very professional and highly skilled editor. She has been and remains my “go to” choice for complex and challenging editing work of important translated reports requiring precision, clarity and inevitably tight turnaround. Always dedicated to completing the task to the highest standard, Nancy is the exemplar of trustworthiness and professionalism. I highly recommend her for the most important and difficult editing work.
— Richard Fairbrother, project officer of UN Migration Agency (International Organization for Migration)
Nancy has been providing outstanding copyediting and proofreading services to the EduMaxi team since 2016. She contributes to a variety of projects ranging from early childhood education to professional learning and development, and she does so with outstanding professionalism. She is not only exceptionally thorough, competent, and diligent, but also proactive when it comes to suggesting improvements to readability and text layout without changing the meaning of what is presented. These are crucial qualities when clients expect a perfect product. Nancy takes great pride in her work and clearly loves what she does. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending Nancy’s services.

Where to find me…



I’m originally from Long Island, New York, but I started traveling as soon as I could, working in European restaurants and clothing shops and teaching in Asia, until I found my true love—words. As a full-time, award-winning writer and editor, I’ve spent nearly two decades in Beijing, China. I am a published Penguin author and have a professional copyediting certificate from University of California at San Diego. I cover China’s theater, dance, opera, and classical music for Time Out Beijing and Time Out Shanghai magazines and have edited books, educational materials, and United Nations policy papers; I  have also written and edited North Korean art catalogues and script-doctored a European-North Korean collaborative film. Although my specialty is China's performing arts, I can write and edit across a broad spectrum that includes general arts and culture, travel, and the social sciences. I also give presentations on China (for children and adults), China arts, and Shakespeare in China, and I do travel photography on my many trips.
