Overview

I earned my Master of Arts in English and Creative Writing and spent over a decade working in higher education before becoming a freelance editor. I edit for an editing company and two publishers as well as for my own clients. I am also an intern with a literary agency. I specialize in developmental editing for young adult, middle grade, historical (usually on the romance side), select upmarket and nonfiction, and query letters and synopses.
