I've edited everything from academic titles to romance to entrepreneurial inspiration to high fantasy to erotic comics; run my own online magazine; written dozens of articles for prestigious publications; and written a memoir of my own.
I particularly love working on romance, fantasy, and memoir, but the point is: If you can write it, I can help you get it into better shape for publication. And I'd love to!
