"The editor of your dreams--not your nightmares"

Overview

I'm an experienced and genre-flexible line editor who specializes in working with independent and first-time authors. I'm known for an honest but gentle style, and I've helped many clients race to the top of the Amazon bestseller lists. I copy-edit as well as offering stylistic suggestions to polish your prose. My specialties are descriptions and character development. Most editors only work in one or two areas; signing up means you’re getting more for less, from a person who really loves working with people as well as books!
