Overview

Let my extensive experience benefit your latest creation. I excel at manuscript appraisals and love to see the author develop as a writer. When the light switches on after guidance in an area such as POV, I know I have done my job. I was delighted when a recent client transformed from blunt telling to nuanced showing. Let me show you how.

Be inspired by my suggestions during a content edit to produce writing of a higher caliber.
