Find Your Memoir Proofreader
Every manuscript needs a proofreader. Just as, when you clean house and do a last look around before guests arrive, your memoir needs a last literary “look around”— by a memoir proofreader.
While Francie King is a writer and editor with a passion for writing profiles, memoirs, and personal biographies, we use her considerable talent for accuracy, spelling and grammar as our chief proofreader.
For Francie, editing and proofreading require a clear eye for both big picture and small detail, along with devotion to maintaining a client’s own voice.
Along with writing or editing more than two dozen books, she has published work for museums and universities, news organizations, magazines, and government publications. Among her own favorite recent projects are the life story of a Chinese immigrant family, the account (ultimately tragic) of an American family in World War II, and a rags-to-riches memoir of a chief executive of a major American company.
Francie lives and works in the greater Boston area.
