Shamash Editing

“All my life I've looked at words as though I were seeing them for the first time.” ― Ernest Hemingway

Thank you for your interest in Shamash Editing!

Growing up with a High School English teacher for a mother, my papers were always edited. As I began to take a deep interest in writing, editing my own work became very important to me too. I never want a mistake to take away from my audience's experience, whether it be a short story or a persuasive essay. Thanks, Mom!

I am, first and foremost, a mother and wife. My three beautiful children, ages 11, 9 and 7, are amazing, creative and full of energy. My husband is a gem! I am also an opera singer, which means I sing most evenings and weekends. We singers have seasons: the Christmas season, the High Holy Day season, and the Opera season. In between these busy seasons there are seasons of calm. It is in these seasons that I turn my attention to my blog, and to other pursuits.
