Can't find your muse? I can help you unlock your potential as a writer whether you're finishing your first book of poems or writing the next great American novel. I love working with authors and relish the challenge of working as a team to write your best possible work. As important, I'll help you achieve and maintain your voice throughout. I am an editor of nonfiction and fiction - particularly literary fiction, historical novels, and, more recently, the New Adult genre. I have a PhD in American Studies from The University of Texas at Austin making me an expert generalist. I have previously taught Creative Writing, Rhetoric & Composition, and 20th-C Literature at the college level.
