Perfect Pages Editor

Sarah Smith

Sarah was raised in a literary family by two English teachers and discovered, at a young age, the joy of expressing herself through words. As she grew, so did her love of words and her experience in using them as she won multiple writing contests and earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism. When a friend asked Sarah to proofread her book, Sarah’s excellent work prompted her friend to recommend that Sarah consider a career as a freelance editor. That’s when Perfect Pages Editor was born.

Ever since, Sarah has delighted in making others shine through her freelance copy editing and proofreading services! But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a review from one of her customers. “Sarah’s insightful guidance and meticulous attention to detail transformed my manuscript into a masterpiece…” – Urcelia Teixeira

You can learn more and connect with Sarah at www.perfectpageseditor.com!”

Read Sarah’s Full Bio Here
“I was raised in a very literary family, with high school English teachers as parents. Reading and writing were an integral part of my life. I have always been a voracious reader and early on discovered the joy of expressing myself through words, winning young authors contests and being published in the local newspaper. While in college, I tutored other students who needed help with grammar. I graduated from Ohio University with a degree in magazine journalism and worked as a writer for a weekly business publication, transitioning to a freelance writer with the birth of our first child. As our children grew, I chronicled our activities and family vacations, wrote newsletters for various organizations, and edited school papers and essays for scholarship applications. In 2020, I joined a national publishing company as a writer and editor assistant, contributing to eight monthly magazines.

In January, New York Times best selling author and childhood friend, Courtney Walsh, posted on her social media asking for volunteers to proofread a novel she wanted to independently publish. Not only did I feel I was qualified with my background, but this sounded fun. I filled out the questionnaire and was selected to proofread “My Phony Valentine”. After submitting my edits, Courtney emailed me and said I caught several errors that her paid proofreader did not. She also said that my comments were very helpful, and asked if I had considered becoming a freelance copy editor/proofreader because I was so good at it. Her enthusiastic comments and encouragement, along with the joy I felt while editing, stirred me to action. I formed an LLC and started researching the Christian fiction industry.”

Ever since, Sarah has delighted in making others shine through her freelance copy editing and proofreading services! But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a review from two of her customers:

“Sarah’s insightful guidance and meticulous attention to detail transformed my manuscript into a masterpiece. Her dedication and expertise exceeded my expectations, making her an indispensable partner in my creative journey. I wholeheartedly recommend her services to any author, aspiring or otherwise.” – Urcelia Teixeira

“Sarah and I went to the same high school (her dad was my English teacher!). She beta read for me a few books ago and I was like “wow you’re amazing at this …” and now she’s freelance copy editing and proofreading. Highly recommend!!” – Courtney Walsh
