Overview

I'm an experienced editor, with a particular love for fantasy, scifi, and memoir-like fiction. I feel that character and story have to come first in a novel. World-building and background are important but shouldn't override the story and its actors.

As the author, your vision of the novel is always the overriding priority and needs to come across to the reader; it's my job to help you achieve that. If your vision isn't clear, let's talk about that and maybe we can figure out how to get it across on the page.

I'm great at helping you achieve your vision beyond what you thought was possible. Subtle nuances in a sentence can cast a character or a scene in an entire new light, and the edits I'm proudest of take advantage of that by enhancing what you've written through minimal changes.
