"Let's grow your best story!"
My goal is that you will...
Grow as a storyteller.
Grow your writing craft.
Grow your confidence.
Grow your author career.
I have a coaching-forward approach to editing, which means in working together, you'll be challenged, pushed, and encouraged to grow as a writer. What you learn in working with me will help you not only write the best version of your current manuscript, but also help you write better stories for years to come.
If you have been missing the collaborative aspect of editing in the past, or find yourself overwhelmed and struggling to move forward when 10+ pages of "things to fix" land in your lap, then you are in the right place. Instead of delivering edits to you and walking away with a "good luck!" I'll be there through the revision process with you. We will discuss your vision for the work and how we can take your work to the next level. I'll provide you with the tools and knowledge to confidently move forward in your revisions and throughout your career as an author.
WHAT IS REQUIRED OF YOU:
Have an open mind and be ready to work. I promise it will be worth it!
"Katie is a rare find. She is invested in the manuscript from the beginning and beyond. She is special in that she critiques and encourages at the same time. She also gives fantastic feedback as a reader and lets you know where something may not make sense to the average reader. I can’t say enough about what a wonderful experience it has been working with Katie. She’s fantastic!" – Tracy Ewens, A LOVE STORY series

I work with writers and authors of all kinds (self-published, first timers, those seeking agent representation) and in several genres to help a writer develop their story into the best possible version it can be. I LOVE seeing authors succeed, and my goal is that working together will be a stepping-stone in getting you there!
I work with authors to create the best possible version of a story by evaluating the content and providing detailed suggestions/edits that keep the “voice” of a product while making it the strongest version possible.
