As an experienced editor who has worked with many USA Today and NYT best-selling authors, my aim is to make your book the best it can be. I excel at developmental editing--helping with things like overall structure, character and romance arcs, and pace. I also line edit, proofread, copy edit, and beta read. I like to work as a partnership, offering suggestions and ideas as needed.

I've edited many category, single-title, NA, and YA romances of all genres (historical, contemporary, suspense, etc.). I've even had an author be nominated for a prestigious RITA award. I know romance, and I know how to help authors perfect their manuscripts, so let me help you make your book a five-star read.
