I'm a published author of 30 books and work full-time as a professional copyeditor and writing coach, specializing in manuscript critiques.
With nearly thirty years of experience as a novelist and a decade of editing, coaching, and teaching writers the craft of fiction, I've developed a team of excellent editors—all novelists—who have the needed experience and wisdom to help authors of any genre write and polish and publish their novels. Many are traditionally published as well as self-published.
I specialize in manuscript critiques, doing more than two hundred a year. I also edit, critique, and proofread for literary agents and publishers.
