Verified identity


I am an award-winning author and ghostwriter with over a decade of publishing experience. My own writing has earned praise for accessibility and engagement. But my ghostwriting honors *your* voice and vision.

Whether you're starting from a blank page or an early draft, I can help. Some clients talk me through their ideas. Others send manuscripts. Either way, the final result is a marketable literary property--copyedited, proofread, and camera-ready.

As CEO and lead ghostwriter at DAS Author Services, I bring a curated team of publishing professionals to every project--a ghostwriter, a copyeditor, and a proofreader all bring fresh, trained eyes to make your ideas pop off the page. To learn more about the DAS team and our services, submit a project request or visit us on the Web. All projects begin with a free consultation, so reach out, and we'll find a time to talk.

DAS Author Services is a proud member of the Independent Book Publisher's Association and Publisher's Marketplace. We follow the market to help your book reach its ideal readers (including industry professionals).

When I'm not writing, I love to watch movies, cook, and knit. I'm also a life-long animal lover who shares my home with two black cats and a graying old dog (who still thinks she's a puppy!).
