Overview

I'm a book developer, ghostwriter, and editor. I also coach authors on planning the best book for their goals. Because of my twenty years of experience in publishing, I help authors refine their idea, polish their work, and reach their audience.

I can help you from concept, to editing, to cover design, to self-publishing, to marketing.

I've worked with NYT bestselling authors, publishers (Simon and Schuster, Hachette, Multnomah, Zondervan, Random House, Nelson, NavPress, and Penguin) and a recent co-writing project hit the New York Times Bestseller list for four weeks.

But am truly honored to help first-time authors.
