Overview

As an Award-winning writer and editor, I have worked in publishing for over 25 years creating and identifying great storytelling for readers of all ages.

I specialize in children’s books, women’s fiction, suspense, drama, and Christian fiction, but I have worked on all kinds of fiction and non-fiction. My career highlights include:

> Publishing Director and Writer for Big Idea Inc. (VeggieTales) and Exclaim Entertainment

• I successfully built the book and curriculum departments for both of these companies from the ground up.

• I have written and edited books for over 25 industry publishers, including Scholastic, Harper Collins, Sony
Entertainment, Disney, Tyndale, Zondervan, Simon & Schuster, and more.

> I am the writer of over 75 published books, numerous curriculum programs, scripts, and more, including
best-sellers, award winners, and chart toppers!

> I won the Editor of the Year Award, along with Gold and Silver Medallions for writing and series
development, plus various other awards.

My writing stands out because it is fresh, innovative prose that meets the needs of readers. I have an eye for detail and a keen understanding of market trends. I create intelligent, engaging material that leaps off the page and makes readers want for more.

I am committed to helping writers produce their best work. I will help you develop your voice and shape your story to make your content memorable. I will provide you with insightful, honest, and constructive feedback. I will create a collaborative, encouraging atmosphere and will work to help make your writing shine!

Because I work as both a writer and editor, I know and understand what it takes to produce an outstanding book from fruition through to sale. I will identify your strong points and help you to correct your weaker ones. I will work through each aspect of your story, including setting, plot, voice, pacing, characterizations, style, and structure.

I will provide you with line-by-line editing as it pertains to content and copy, grammar, and spelling and will outline my recommendations for how to approach revisions. I am also happy to go over any questions or concerns that you may have as you work through your changes.

Should you wish, I will also provide you with a second pass after you have made your changes.

I have worked with best-selling authors and first-time writers. I look forward to working with you. Together we will create a book that is everything you hope it will be. I am very anxious to hear from you and read your work. Contact me and reserve your time today!
