I’m Nadara “Nay” Merrill. Most people call me Nay and I like it that way (Hey, I made that rhyme! I’m a poet and didn’t even know it!). I’m a book lover, a coffee lover, a cat lover, and a book editor and proofreader for indie authors.

To get the professional stuff out of the way, I’ve been a book editor for over ten years but have been editing full time for three years now. I have an associate’s degree in American Sign Language (ASL) and psychology and a bachelor’s degree in English.

Now on to the fun stuff. I’ve been obsessed with books since I can remember. I love holding them as much as I love reading them. Now I love editing them too.

My favorite genres are dystopian/post-apocalyptic, science-fiction, psychological thrillers, and romance, especially romantic comedies. A few of my favorite authors are Teagan Hunter, Jennifer Van Wyk, and Claire Kingsley (all romance).

I live in South Texas with my fiancée, Jo-Jo, and our two boys, Cosmo (black kitty, 8) and Saturn (orange and white kitty, 6). I could go on and on AND ON about them (ask anyone who’s met me, lol), but to put it simply, they are my whole heart.

My days are mostly spent editing and drinking coffee, and I’m really fortunate to be able to do this in my pajamas. I LOVE pajamas, and I’m one of those people who has daytime and nighttime pajamas. I like to be comfy. In the evenings, I’m usually curled up in bed with a book, a cup of coffee, and my two cats, or watching movies with my fiancée. I live a very simple life, doing the things I love every day.

I’d love to discuss your book with you, tell you about my services, and answer any questions you have to see if we’d be a good fit. 🙂
