I'm a professional editor and publisher based out of Atlanta, Georgia. I specialize in genre fiction, ranging from horror to fantasy.

As a publisher and editor, I approach each manuscript with a knowledge of what it takes to go from rough draft to published work. I can help with every level of editing, from a quick assessment to in-depth copyediting and developmental strategies.

I have helped edit and produce everything from horror magazines to original musicals. I've also worked with every aspect of getting a product to market, from design to publicity. Whether you are looking to pitch a Big 5 publisher or take your work the distance yourself, I can help you put your best foot forward.
