Rie has been writing since she was old enough to hold a fat pencil, and editing from the moment she discovered the eraser at the other end.
She has been a freelance editor for ten years. She divides her time between fiction editing, primarily in the romance and spec fiction genres, and editing non-fiction works in the self-help, self-improvement, and business books categories. She got her start as a technical writer, followed by 15 years as a software engineer and engineering manager. Over the course of her career, she has been responsible for more than 500 publications.
Rie is a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA) and the Freelancers Union, and has taken courses in Police Procedure, Undercover Operations for Writers, and Query Writing.
When she’s not editing manuscripts, Rie enjoys knitting, running, wine tasting, and travel. She wishes there were a way to do all four of them at once.
