Hello, my name is Mikayla Deely, I am a student at SNHU pursuing a degree in English and creative writing with a concentration in fiction and I am a professional copy editor and proofreader. Theater used to be a big part of my life but after I started drafting my first novel I realized my passion was for writing. While pursuing my career as an author, I want to help others reach their goals and make their writing shine.
While my focus is on my books, I have a passion for editing and helping people polish their work. I've worked with several clients in both fiction and nonfiction copy editing and proofreading. I have also done developmental editing for novellas. I work closely with authors to make sure their work shines.
I am focused on building a positive community for writers and readers alike. My characters and the struggles they go through are influenced by what the community would like to see more of in fantasy. Reader insights have an influence on my projects and can heavily sway how a story unfolds.
I'm also committed to providing advice and answering questions to writers and authors as we guide each other forward through the process of writing.
As I continue on this journey, I couldn't do it without the support of those around me. If you'd like to keep up with me and see more of my life beyond my blog follow me on Instagram at @mikayla_deely
