My clients appreciate my ability to find the heart of their stories and the pulse behind their ideas. I'm known for my warm personality, strong work ethic, and ability to grasp and express intellectual concepts. My favorite genres to serve include memoir, biography, parenting, education, and business/thought leadership. My process is organized and personal, involving streamlined interviews, regular draft revisions and open-ended communication by phone, Zoom, or email. I will also travel to you if you prefer working in person.
As a ghostwriter and developmental editor, I've worked with a wide variety of people, including a high-profile judge, prominent educational leaders, restaurateurs, politicians, social impact experts, spiritual healers, and CEOs.
I have special training in nonfiction research and writing, and also draw heavily upon my background as a creative non-fiction writer to compose lively prose. I have an MA from NYU and a BA from Barnard College—both in English—and am well versed in all aspects of literature and figurative language, all of which informs my writing. Lastly, I am a mother, business owner, and educator who brings my creativity and life experience to my work.
THE NEXT STEP
If you'd like me to bid on your project, please email me through Reedsy to set up a time to chat so I can learn more about the scope of work involved and see if we're a good fit. There are always a number of ways to approach a project to fit your goals and budget.
Since each client's project is unique, I tailor my approach to suit those individual needs. I tailor my approach to suit your individual needs and goals.
My process includes understanding your target audience, your preferred narrative style, and researching the market for similar books to know what sells and where a particular gap in that niche exists. We begin by collaborating on a detailed outline that forms the skeleton of the manuscript.
Next, I conduct a series of 90-minute interviews with you, usually one for each chapter. I'll submit drafts to you on a regular chapter-by-chapter basis, which I revise according to your feedback and edits. Usually two drafts of intensive editing and reviewing is all it takes before my line-editing and proofreading team takes a final pass.
