--1) From sniffing out the smallest punctuation error to supporting writers in shaping beautiful story arcs, I find editing deeply fulfilling. I'm a writer myself**, so I provide empathetic feedback as well as cheerleading - and the occasional, as-needed swift kick in the southern end of clients' northern expeditions.

My preference genres are:

--Adult nonfiction - I especially love economics, politics, health, real estate, quantum physics/science, finances and social commentary but haven't met a subject I couldn't dive deeply into.
--Literary fiction novels
--Women's fiction

2) I also have a very satisfying practice coaching entrepreneurs and small business owners into confidence by guiding them to finding and writing in their authentic voice whether they're writing emails to their subscribers, crafting transcripts for courses they're creating or posting blogs to get their story out there.

I charge by the project and provide an estimate based on the conversation I have during my free 30-minute consultations. Reach out to me at to connect about your writing/editing needs. I'm jazzed to get to know you and your work in the world.
