I have 11 years of in-house experience editing romance novels for Harlequin, and in 2016 I moved to a freelance role. While I continue to edit books, assess manuscripts, and do copywriting for Harlequin, I also work directly with authors wishing to self-publish or submit their material to traditional publishers.
Several books I’ve edited have won awards, including the National Readers’ Choice Award, the Booksellers’ Best Award, the National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, and the Golden Quill Award.
In addition to romance fiction, I have worked on memoirs, women's fiction, and chapter books for young readers. I also love reading fantasy, science fiction and narrative non-fiction, and would welcome the opportunity to work with you in those areas.
I offer content, structural and stylistic editing as well as copy editing and proofreading. I can help you develop your story and work with you to make your book and your query as strong as possible.
