Work experience


January, 2010 – Present (about 8 years)

Being a published writer and professional editor allows me to understand what the writer is trying to achieve while at the same time having the goal to create a finished product that will attract readers. I have worked on endless short stories, many novels, and more recently non-fiction and corporate publishing projects. I thrive on the variety and bring a renewed energy and curiosity to every single collaboration. It is through this collaborative process that great things happen. I have been told I have a particular talent for removing clutter from a story/text allowing the best words to shine, and for the writer to connect with the core of the story.
