About Red Penn

Lynne here… Red Penn Services is no longer operating.

I suffered an “outage” and a heart attack, late in January 2021. I was discharged in early February, but was largely unable to do things independently. Due to the SPS spasm and the induced coma after the “h’at-attack”, my memory was badly affected.
As I attempted to get back into work, I found myself easily frustrated.

I made the decision to, rather than give my clients poor editing services, it would be better if clients found an alternative editor.

I want to thank you all – clients with a single title, clients sending me a series, and the publishers who trusted me with their clients works. Carry on writing, and may you find a different editor who pleases you as much or more than you’ve said I have.
