Welcome to My Blog!

Updated: Mar 4

Welcome! I'm so happy you found me. My name is Misha, and I run Novel Words Editing. There are so many topics I'm excited to cover on this blog, but first, I thought it would be good for you to get to know me a bit. After all, every author wants to know their manuscript is in good hands when they send it off to their editor. Simply put, I'm a lover of words. I've always loved to read and write. When I was a kid, one of my favorite days of the year was Scholastic Book Fair day. Books, books, and more books! I started reading romance books in my late teens and never stopped. Contemporary, historical, suspense, young name it, I probably read it. I have a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and spent considerable time post-college editing for friends and family and working on my own writing. At the beginning of 2019, I combined my passion for romance stories and my editorial skills to form Novel Words Editing. During that year, I earned a certificate in editing from the University of Washington. Flash forward three years and I've now had the pleasure of working on many wonderful manuscripts for some equally wonderful authors. I absolutely love my job, and I am committed to being the best editor I can be. That means I take professional development seriously and I'm continually attending classes/workshops and reading. Outside of my work, I am a single mom to a highly energetic and creative 11-year-old who I'm happy to report shares my love of reading. I love writing (romance, of course!), crafting, and spending time with my friends. When I'm not working or being mom, though, my favorite thing to do is always curling up with a good book. <3 Here are five fast facts about me:

  • I lived in France for four months in college.

  • I have a borderline unhealthy love of cheese.

  • I'm in my second year of homeschooling my son.

  • I have two naughty cats that I love dearly.

  • I've always loved a good murder mystery.
