Paul W. Conant graduated from The King’s College (now in NYC) with a degree in Mathematics, which he credits for having led him into a career in word processing, linguistics, and editing.
Copyediting first took hold when he read a book on How to Make Money Reading Books by Bruce Fife, Publisher of Piccadilly Books, Colorado Springs, CO. It wasn’t what the book said so much as the errors he found in the book that led him to send an errata sheet to the author/publisher. That resulted in a relationship where he edited several manuscripts for the man. It also helped him realize that God had given him a gift that could help others.
That same year, he entered into a contract with Judy Sindecuse, publisher of Bride and Groom Magazine, to do all their editing. (That contract lasted for 23 years.)
In 2000, Paul transitioned from full-time work for Andersen Consulting to full-time copyediting work for J.M. LeBel Enterprises, a textbook publisher in North Dallas. He helped them produce high school textbooks in Chemistry, Physics, and Environmental Science.
For the next 18 years, Paul’s company, PWC Editing, started working for dissertation clients, Thumbtack leads, and leads from The Christian PEN. In 2016, the Christian Editing Connection secured a position for him with Holy Fire Publishing, which still sends him Christian non-fiction work. In 2020, after PENCON, the Christian PEN’s Editors Conference, he started working with Redemption Press to do copyediting projects.
Paul loves applying his math skills to copyediting projects in his detailed approach to everything about the English language, and in his ability to detect inconsistencies in a writer’s style. He also loves projects that involve figures and tables as well as doctrinal studies.
Paul enjoys walking in several parks in Dallas and Mesquite with his wife, Robyn, of 38 years. He takes pictures of hawks and kites, and enjoys watching the birds that come to the backyard feeders, like tufted titmice, blue jays, house wrens, cardinals, as well as Carolina wrens, hummingbirds, and mockingbirds that like bugs, flowers, and berries, respectively.
