With more than twenty years of experience in writing, and over ten years of experience as a professional in editorial critique and developmental editing, I will give your manuscript that magic touch that will make it shine. Beware head hopping, passive voice slips, and plot holes! My critiqued works include USA Today best-selling cozy mysteries by Emma Jameson, and award winning contemporary and paranormal romances by Tara West. I've also done developmental editing for authors such as Eve Langlais and Disa Dawn. While I enjoy editing nearly all genres of fiction, my specialties are romance (paranormal, contemporary, suspense, scfifi, etc), urban fantasy, cozy mysteries, and epic fantasy. And while I'm American, I spent many years in the UK so am familiar with the differences in language and spelling. With over 35 published titles myself, I know the hard work and dedication it takes to make your story come to life.
Written and published 35+ titles in paranormal romance, urban fantasy, contemporary romance, and cozy mystery.
