Perfect Page Editing

Welcome to, landing page for Perfect Page Editing and the fiction of Ruth Kaye Owen. I specialize in editing academic writing, especially for writers whose first language is not English. I have edited dissertations, theses, and other academic papers on a wide range of topics, from chemistry to human rights law to education. I stick with you all the way up to defense, making sure you’re following all the persnickety style and format rules your committee requires.

I also love to edit fiction, particularly YA and middle grade fiction, since those are the age ranges I write and read most often. Whether you need a copy edit or a thorough developmental edit, I have the expertise to help you polish your novel. My rates are affordable, and I always, always keep in mind that the book is yours, not mine, and I make changes with your goals for the project in mind.

Take a look at my blog for reviews of recently published middle grade and YA books, as well as writing and editing advice and random musings. I can also be found on, where I guest blogged about how character creates plot: Part 1 Part 2.
