For the last seven years, I've worked as a freelance editor and copywriter for individual writers and Romance presses. I worked as an editorial intern for Entangled Publishing's YA line of books and as an acquiring content editor at Samhain. At both Samhain Publishing and Entangled, I read and evaluated a variety of manuscripts, and as a content editor, I've taken numerous books from draft to finished product. I'm also a professor who has taught hundreds of students how to find and correct the errors in grammar, logic, and content in their papers. I've helped beginning writers craft stronger sentences and advanced writers refine their work. Because I'm a writer, myself, I understand the challenges writers face in a increasingly competitive market. As an active member of RWA, I have a keen knowledge of genre fiction, especially Romance and Young Adult, and the market as a whole. But as a writer, I also understand how important a writer's work is, and I approach each new manuscript with the respect it deserves. My goal as an editor is to help you produce the cleanest, most polished draft possible. But I don't just want to find your mistakes. As your editor, I want to help you build confidence in your story and your talent.
Acquired manuscripts, worked with debut and multi-published authors to get books through publishing process, including writing promotional copy, cover design consultation, and working with proofreaders and production crew.
