I began my professional freelance writing and editing career in 2009, after a successful career as a teacher and bookstore owner. Since that time, I’ve won multiple writing awards, established long-standing client relationships, and helped numerous authors ready their manuscripts for traditional and self-publishing. I specialize in combining editing with coaching services that enhance a writer’s skill level.
A published writer and experienced editor, Kimberly Smith Ashley brings her exemplary dedication to quality and service to every writing project. Consistency, clarity, coherence, and correctness are her guiding principles.
As an editor, Kimberly has been nothing short of outstanding. Her dedication to the project couldn’t be stronger. The quality of Kimberly’s work is impressive. She nudges me to think beyond what I thought was possible, while being my cheerleader, team member and coach. I truly value Kimberly’s work ethic and responsiveness. When working with Kimberly, I feel confident that she is committed to helping me create a great quality product.Dina Mauro - Author: A Dose of Tia: How a Woman and Her Rescued Dog Embraced Life Through Volunteering–And How You Can Too
I chose Kimberly to work on a project that was detailed and, frankly, trouble from the start. No matter what direction the project went, though, during Kim’s time her work was consistently excellent, and she proved to be one of the best writers on the project. I would absolutely hire her again, for any writing assignment, both because of her work and the spirit with which she approached it.Anne Cherney - General Partner at Baird Group Technical Communications
My experience with Kimberly was definitely one that I will always cherish. Being a new author, I had many questions and concerns on how to go about this whole ordeal, but Kimberly stepped in and cleared the path and gave me a better understanding. Kimberly provided knowledge, professionalism, and the support that I needed in order to be successful in writing my first book. I truly look forward to working with Kimberly again in the near future.Billy Hargrove - Coauthor: The DBA Success Guide
