A Bit About Me

My name is Lyndsey Smith, and I am pleased to make your acquaintance. When I am not editing your books, I am happiest curled up with my cat, Phoenix, and a good horror book, which he sometimes, not often, lets me read peacefully. 

On the work front, I am a certificated editor and a self-publishing horror author of two novels and one novella under my nom-de-plume of Bella Dean Joyner. The horror genre was my first love and why my editing services bear the name. I am fully conversant with CMOS, MLA, and APA styles and am a member of Sigma Tau Delta, an International English Honor Society.

It’s so nice to meet you! ;)
