Overview

Reviews (1)
I am a bookwyrm--not a humble "worm"--but very much a dragon of the medieval sort with a fierce love of tomes. In other words, I'm an editor and writer with 10 years of experience and hoarded craft knowledge, including a strong background in educational publishing, teaching, and journalism. I specialize in science fiction and fantasy, but my papery wingspan stretches over a broad range of subjects, styles, and formats. I earned my MA in English Literature studying the creative process and analyzing high fantasy with cognitive neuroscience.

As a former editor at Capstone, I have worked with authors at all stages and levels, providing a keen, reptilian eye from initial concept to the final proofreads. Whether editing creative, historical, science, or how-to topics, my industry knowledge informs my suggestions and advice to ensure each book offers quality, intriguing content. Furthermore, I have a nose for the snuffling out the content best suited to different reading levels and ages.

Teaching writing and literature courses has made me an excellent developmental editor. My talon-sharp focus tightens plots, enhances characters, and torches inconsistencies to best showcase author voice and individuality. With both hatchling and seasoned authors, my collaboration on their projects has added distinct value.

This book dragon will find the gems in your precious treasure trove of words and help you polish them until their gleam must be put on display. Whether that display takes the form of an indie pub or with the intent of finding a traditional home, feed me your words, and I can help you make that dream become more than a fantasy!
