I'm a hopeless romantic who is always looking to fall in love with a new book, which is why I am so passionate about genre romance (historical! contemporary! paranormal! inspirational! romantic suspense! rom-com!), YA, and WF. I've worked with Goodreads Choice finalists, RITA award nominees, and bestsellers including Scarlett Cole, May McGoldrick, Alexis Daria, and Sidney Halston. To spice things up, I've also edited the occasional cozy mystery and craft book.
My editing style has been described as tough but fair. What does that mean for you? If I love something, I'll let you know with sound effects (awwww!). If something isn't working, I'll let you know...occasionally with sound effects (ummm?). My goal is not just to fix typos but to help highlight your strengths and grow your craft. With each book you write, your craft will evolve. My job is to kick that evolution into gear. Bad habits? I'll call them out. Shaky character motivation? Let's bring fix it. Grammar is important, but I'm not a copy editor. My skill set is developmental. If you are looking for an editor to help you with character development/motivation, pacing, story arch, and dialogue, I'm the gal for you! If you like your book just the way it is and want an editor to look for plot holes and consistency errors, then maybe don't pick me. I'll look for both of those things, but I'm also looking for so much more.
So bring me your feisty heroines, your smoldering bad boys, your Navy SEALs, and complicated relationships!
