My background is in journalism and I have had innumerable articles published on a variety of topics in publications including Family Circle, Community Concierge Magazine, inform, and others. I have worked as a reporter for WILL-AM 580 at the University of Illinois, where our features won the National 2004 Edward R. Murrow Award for electronic journalism. As an editor I have set writing guidelines and standards, and edited for accuracy and substance. You can see my writing clips at


“I am a writer who has worked with five different editors on five different projects, and Lynn Crandall is by far the best editor I have worked with. Only two of the four books I had published read exactly the way I want them to read. Those two books have been edited by Lynn. She is quick, yet she is meticulous. She caught every slight, and oversight, that I read over time and time again. She has also offered suggestions that made my work infinitely stronger, while managing to maintain my voice and vision. Simply Put – Lynn is the best there is! And, she is a joy to work with! She makes the editing process fun!” Bill Rosencrans, Author of Dakota: A Work in Process, Dakota: Still a Work in Process, and Lime in the Coconut

“Lynn Crandall is a consummate editor. In her many years of professional writing and editorial experience she has sculpted her mastery of the craft well beyond the requisite grammatical command. She is also a coach, gentle mentor and confidant, capable of guiding a writer through structure and complex story development. She brings to a project a discerning and constructive insight—regularly precise and often unflinching, yet always honest and productive—that propels a writer to dig deeper and, sometimes, even re-envision the subject matter into a much stronger narrative. I highly recommend Lynn to writers of all levels as a vital instrument for effective and profitable writing.” George Amaya, Publisher, Community Concierge Magazine

“I feel the book is in much better shape and I am grateful for all your contributions and advise. I have certainly learned a lot!” Cheryl Reese-Price, Author of Echoes
