Overview

I'm a writer by nature and offer editorial, writing, and some additional marketing services.

I have worked with a number of authors in a variety of genres, including romance, historical, action, non-fiction and children's. My speciality is crime fiction.

Several of my authors have started as self-published and through working on their style, skills and quality, we've been able to improve their writing and successfully win them deals with traditional publishing houses.

My focus is always on the author and their story. I work hard to ensure that we stay true to the original idea and every suggestion is to strengthen the narrative and improve the reading experience.
