Hi, I'm Lyric

I'm a freelance nonfiction editor based in Chicago, IL.

You're writing a book!

The writing process can be pretty exhausting, and it can often be tough to get the words in your head onto the page in a clear, concise way. I get it, and I'm here to help!


Whether you're sharing your personal story, inciting change in others, or establishing yourself as an expert in your field, I can help you turn your draft into a finely tuned finished product while maintaining your voice, vision, and style.

If you're ready to take your writing to the next level, you're in the right place!

How can I help?
Line Editing

Focuses on clarity, emotion, fluidity, tone, meaning, and content of sentences/paragraphs.


Check of technicalities, such as proper grammar and spelling, sentence structure, consistency, flow, logic, and plot holes. 


Final step before publishing.

Detailed check for proper spelling and grammar, typos, and spacing/font consistency.

Who do I help?

My specialty lies in assisting one-of-a-kind creatives with their nonfiction projects.


I specialize in a variety of nonfiction works, including:

  • unique, inspiring memoirs

  • health & wellness/transformational self-help books

"Lyric has been great to work with. She's responsive, flexible, and thorough in her editing. We provided her with a rundown of our quirks and preferences in a few editing scenarios, and she learned our oddities and implemented them immediately. She has improved the articles we've handed her without fail. I highly recommend Lyric as a copy editor or proofreader. "

Mindy Schoeneman / Senior Editor / Jameson Management & Marketing

"I came across Lyric by chance, and I’m so glad I did! She helped finesse the final editing touches to my upcoming memoir, and her attention to detail was spot on. She’s truly dedicated to her work. Plus, the fact that she’s easy to communicate with makes the process even more seamless. You will not be left disappointed!"

Maíra Rayanne / Author / Beyond These Green Eyes

"Lyric is an extremely professional and talented editor. I thought my memoir was in decent shape, but Lyric made the corrections it needed to bring the story to life. Kudos, blessings, and gratitude!"
