Whether you're writing a 30-page comic, a memoir, videogame script, or a fantasy trilogy, let me help you make your writing—and even more importantly, your STORY—the very best it can be! Working with me, you will have a mentor, teammate, and cheerleader invested in your story's success.
While I specialize in Developmental Editing and Editorial Assessments, I also possess a sensitivity to language and its usage that makes me adept at Line/Copyedits in a variety of genres and styles to ensure that language is strong and meaningful for a reader.
Creators who work with me often note my creative power and eagerness to explore even the most minute details. This unique attention to detail elevates storytelling to the next level and ensures that your message reaches your readers.
An innate sense of the nuances of linguistics and language, a lifetime of reading, and a passion for storytelling as an art form combined make me the type of editor who understands works far beyond their surface details. I am someone capable of pulling out themes and ideas within a story that even you, the story's creator, may not have been fully aware of!
I have worked on numerous titles at a traditional publisher that were geared toward multinational audiences, providing both editorial and administrative support. As a freelancer, I have worked on a variety of comic books, visual novels, novels, memoirs, scripts, and short stories geared for both independent and traditional publication. This breadth and depth of experience arm me with insight to help you route your story toward any goal, be it for the underground indie scene or toward pitching to agents and becoming the next bestseller from a top publishing house.
Interests and specialties of mine include character-driven works of literary and creative fiction, particularly in the Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance, and Adventure genres, as well as the Young Adult (YA) and emerging New Adult (NA) genres.
I work frequently with stories that don't fit squarely within singular or more traditional genres, and especially appreciate atypical or unique works that push me to use all of my skills.
I am currently working on my own monomythic NA Fantasy series and am also head writer with an indie game studio specializing in murder mystery visual novels.
I can't wait to work with you next!
What others say:
From start to finish, the process Jamie works by is a writer's dream. She goes into full detail. . . constantly asks questions on the plot, the characters, the details of each outline [while] keeping in constant communication with the buyer throughout it all and always being polite and professional.
Jamie's talent for understanding POV structure, wide vocabulary, themes of each chapter, planting the seeds of foreshadowing, exploring relationships, writing engaging action, expressive dialogue and being able to flesh out a world in various ways makes her one of the best writers and editors I have ever met. It is an honour to work with her every time.
