I bring years of experience in the writing world as both a published author as well as an editor who has helped writers land agents, six-figure book deals, and feel more confident in self-publishing their work. Working alongside editors from major publishers for much of my career, I've developed a specialization across genres in children's and adult fiction. I can't emphasize enough how much I enjoy seeing a story come together in partnership with its author.
In my free time, it brings me great pride to serve on the committees of major writing organizations such as WriteMentor as well as lecturing for the renowned Gotham Writers Workshop in New York City. When not working, I’m often exploring libraries or, yep, reading. Some of my favorite books include the Scythe series by Neal Schusterman, the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, and Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson.

“George was amazing to work with as he helped to edit my epic fantasy. He was professional, courteous with his review, fast, and, most importantly, his comments on my work helped me to "re-vision" my work in ways that were important to the story I was telling and the world I was creating. Anyone would be lucky to work with him, especially marginalized writers.”
-Jamar J. Perry, Author of the Cameron Battle series (Bloomsbury, 2022)
“He has the perfect balance of critique and praise. After he had edited my work, I had a clear direction of where to go and I felt confident going forward. I highly recommend George, he is amazing and on top of being a great editor, he also does it professionally and with care.”
-Janelle McCurdy, Published Author

Gotham Writers Workshop
Gotham Writers Workshop is the largest and most highly respected independent writing school in the country. As a creative writing instructor, I educate and guide writers through the fundamentals of fiction and non-fiction as well as the publishing space so they can succeed no matter their goals.
I’m an author published with HarperCollins with several book deals, almost all in the six-figure range, under my belt. My books range across contemporary and fantasy, selling all over the world. I am excited to impart my wisdom as a published and successful author to clients eager to land their own deals.
Working with a boutique agency owned by a Simon & Schuster editor, I honed my skills in developmental editing, submission packages for agents, and other services to support budding authors. I performed dozens of long edit projects for clients across genres and age categories, some going on to land large publishing deals of their own!
Leveraging the skills I've honed after years spent as a traditionally published author, I've taken to supporting other writers in reaching and exceeding their publishing goals. Working to help strengthen craft, hone stories, and provide guidance through every step of the writing process, I've seen authors of differing age categories and genres land agents, book deals, and more.
