Overview

Seeking authors! I'm a seasoned editor looking to help you improve your writing project. I offer copyediting, line editing, and developmental editing in narrative non-fiction/memoirs. Looking to expand into women's literature, and contemporary adult literature genres. Thrillers OK, too.

I've spent 20 years in traditional, multimedia, and online publishing, crossing from history to healthcare, from magazine to book to video, which has sharpened my skills in developmental, line, and copyediting along the way. A master's degree in teaching English has honed my assessment skills and allows me to correct and comment with compassion. I've taught and trained both writers and editors. I know what 'good looks like.'

A good story is simply a good story. Working with a good editor can make it great. Tell me your story and let's make it great together.
