Editing services are provided for all genres, including those gruesome and explicit scenes. If you can get my heart racing as your protagonist is running for his life, you will make an instant fan out of me. I’m great with the fast-paced action stories and I adore worlds filled with magic and imagination. If you send me science fiction, be prepared to have your scientific principles challenged; I have a PhD in Astronomy—yes, people, you can call me a rocket scientist if you wish. If you make me cry as the heroine is forced to say goodbye to the love of her life, I will curse your name, then kiss you for invoking such real emotions. At the end of the day, I’m all about stories that are so surreal that they have to be true; to believe anything else would be sacrilege.

If you are looking for an editor for non-fiction, depending on the subject matter, you might have me fascinated and wanting to know more. If the subject is science related or about ancient cultures, my interest is piqued.

I’m more than happy to edit short stories as well as those opus novels. Prices vary based on the length of the manuscript, complexity of work, and urgency of feedback. Quotes are available upon request and review of work. Be advised that some services carry a minimum charge. Discounts are available.
