EDITING - Developmental; Substantive/Structural; Stylistic; Rewriting; Author Coaching; and Copy editing, for Fiction, Non-Fiction, Academic, Professional Resumes, Report Writing, and Letters. *Suzanne's niche is working within an indigenous context to identify, bridge, and/or clarify cultural differences between Aboriginal and mainstream cultures. If an Aboriginal author is presenting indigenous concepts for inclusive readership, Suzanne ensures the content is culturally comprehensive to that audience without the risk of misinterpreting the indigenous worldview. If a non-Aboriginal author is incorporating indigenous characters or content, she ensures a culturally accurate approach in order to avoid generalizations and stereotypical portrayals.
