I'm a passionate book editor and ghostwriter with more than a decade of experience at major publishers Penguin Random House and HarperCollins.
Whenever I'm asked why I love being an editor, I respond with one word: storytelling. I'm endlessly fascinated with other people. I like to get into another person's head and understand their experiences, to see what's universal among us and to see what makes us each different. I'm an observer and listener first, and I can help you take your story from an idea to a finished product on the page.
Areas of expertise include commercial fiction, historical fiction, romance, memoir, narrative nonfiction, style, diet, how-to, and parenting. If you have a story to tell or a message to get into the marketplace, I can provide the direction you need to polish and publish your project.
I offer various services, from a full developmental edit to a reader report with big-picture feedback, as well as practical advice on how to proceed with the writing or publishing processes.
