Overview

Author, Editor of over 160 published novels, Writing Coach, CEO and Managing Publisher/Editor at Evolved Publishing LLC.

Words can leave us breathless, sentences can stir hearts, paragraphs can spark the mind, and stories can enrich the soul. It all starts not with words, but with the RIGHT words. My job as coach and editor is to help writers make that quantum leap.

I've worked with dozens of authors on almost 200 projects, most of them published.

Although my primary responsibilities lie with my duties as Co-Founder, CEO, and Managing Publisher/Editor at I love to work with emerging authors who need the kind of coaching I provide. My greatest strength will be in helping you to elevate your prose as a writer.
