Overview

I'm a writing teacher, a freelance editor, a book podcaster (danreadsbooks.com), and a writer of my own fiction, too. My philosophy is to help writers understand what it is they've been trying to say all along. I move through clients' manuscripts like I'm hiking through a delicate ecosystem -- I do my best to leave no trace. Tell me what you're working on, and I'll tell you how I can help you. Oh, yeah -- I can talk about writing all day long. I love the work, and I want to work with people who share my enthusiasm.
