My career includes writing for the Chicago Tribune; serving as managing editor of an employee website and social media platform for a global audience; writing as author and ghostwriter; serving as Writer in Residence at Tyndale House Publishers and as a freelance editor for various publishers and authors.
With over 20 years of professional editing experience, I have edited hundreds of books that were later published and have coached authors through writing their first and/or subsequent books.
I provide direct, detailed, and encouraging feedback, with a goal of helping authors make their books best sellers.
Please note that I cannot work on a manuscript that is in any kind of template because it is too difficult or even impossible to make changes or suggestions in a template. I need a Microsoft Word document with no embedded formatting, style, or template. The design and layout of your book will be handled later in typesetting with your publisher. Thank you.
I have edited more than 250 books (both fiction and nonfiction) for several well-known publishers and I have had eight of my own books published as well. I have been a writing teacher and coach for many authors and I really enjoy working with fellow writers. I have worked on books for Tyndale House Publishers, Redemption Press, Gilead, and Gospel Advocate.
