Verified identity


I have been working as a freelance beta reader and editor for several years. I recently expanded my services to include book coaching, after becoming a certified coach through Author Accelerator's Book Coach Certification program.

I have worked on dozens of manuscripts, many of which have gone on to be published. A few of these are listed below. I have been told by previous clients that I am easy to work with, quick to provide feedback, great at pointing out the small details, and balancing being honest while still being kind.
