My Stupid Girl is Aurora Smith's debut novel. She wrote it in between dinner and homework hour, and late into the nights after everyone else in the house was asleep. I watched and listened as she worked out the nuances of writing a huge work over the course of a year, and then became a beta reader, revisions editor, and finally gave the book the once over for line edits. This is an editing job I thoroughly enjoyed because the book itself is so much fun to read.

I worked with Dr. Cerkez for over a year in various drafts of his dissertation. A retired Marine, Dr. Cerkez is now a computer wizard working as a contract programmer and AI specialist. Edits of this document included revision queries (i.e.: content revision) and substantial line edits.

This work is an "inspired by real events" and so was fascinating to read on a whole other level apart from the general enjoyment of good fiction. I asked the author (on more than one occasion) if this or that passage really happened. The answer, more often than not, was a resounding yes. Great dialogue and a quirky, unusual story set in the midst of Virginia's share of the Appalachian mountain range. My work for this novel consisted mostly of line edits.
