Overview

I have been writing and editing my own work for over 9 years and I have worked as freelance editor for the last 2 years. I have an emphasis in Young Adult, Fantasy and Poetry Collections, but I work with most all fiction genres. I prefer to not work with Non-Fiction or Christian Fiction. I currently edit and work for Patchwork Press and have founded an online poetry magazine called Cauldron Anthology. I have worked with authors through the whole editing process: developmental edit, line edit, and copy-edits etc. I love working with authors to see their dreams come true.
