I believe good editing should be equal parts finding places to improve the story and sharing what is working really well. An author's voice is one of the most important parts of a manuscript and my goal is to bring that out and make it shine. I will always provide clear and concise feedback but leave the interpretation of how to translate that to the page for you to decide. Reading a manuscript draft is a privilege, and I know the hard work that goes into writing one. Whatever your vision for your story, I want to help you make it a reality.

As an acquisitions editor I manage all the projects I contract, approximately 30-40 per year, from inception to production. I work closely with the authors to develop their voices and bring out the best version of their stories.
