I have worked with numerous self-published authors to execute their visions and create a clean manuscript. I approach each book as an individual creation, but with an eye towards genre and industry expectations.
After I earned my MA in English from the University of Georgia, I spent a brief amount of time studying fiction writing in the MFA program at Temple University. I currently work in book publishing in Atlanta, GA.
I have worked in the following genres: Business, Genre Fiction, Literary Fiction.
I edit according to the Chicago Manual of Style, but I can apply any style guide the author chooses.

Crafting a work of fiction is a gloriously arduous process. With over twenty years of experience at one of the big NYC houses, I can help.
