Lauren I. Ruiz
Founder and Editor

Welcome. I'm Lauren—I perform all the services described on the site.

Since starting Pure Text in November of 2010, I've successfully collaborated with a range of clients; namely, fiction and non-fiction authors and business professionals in a variety of industries.

Because my clients live all over the world, I adapt to both British and American English styles. I'm based out of New Hampshire, USA.

A bit more about me: I'm fluent in Spanish, and I'm passionate about the environment, human rights, self-improvement, and body focused repetitive behaviors (BFRBs).

Why Choose Me?


Professionalism is caring about your business and about how clients see your business. Hopefully, the fair and timely way I interact with clients shows that I do just that.


I regularly delve into grammar and the art of writing by keeping up with the best books on the craft, webinars/classes, reputable blogs and other online resources, and, of course, the authors themselves.

Has something about your writing been troubling you? » Ask me about it


I recommend what's best for your target audience, style, message, and more—not what "should" be done.

Aside from that, my services can be adjusted to meet your needs and address specific concerns.
