About Tougheditor.com |
Tougheditor.com is run by Stephanie Barton, a freelance writer and editor with more than a decade of experience.
My career began at Bantam Doubleday Dell, where I worked for three years in editorial production, learning the ropes of publishing.
A move to Texas forced me to answer the call of my inner nerd, and I became a tech writer and editor for NewTek, an Emmy-award winning software company. I wrote the manual for Video Toaster  from the ground up and earned praise in PC World magazine along with the undying love of the user community.
With my editorial bonnet firmly tied on, I began freelancing for Lguide.com, San Antonio Weddings and others, writing and editing articles, reviews, and web content. I contracted as the PR Director for a nonprofit, Gemini Ink, and pulled in national attention for them in The New York Times and on the CBS Early Show.
Time moved on and so did I. I moved to Europe, where I served as the remote Editor-in-Chief for San Antonio Weddings and then as the Editor-in-Chief for a small lifestyle magazine, freeStyle. I continued to take on freelance gigs with clients in the United States.
Now I live and freelance in New Mexico, where I gaze out my window at the Sandia mountains as I edit books for Wiley & Sons, write articles for Forbes media, and put my skills to work for local firms.
