Paul Thayer - Editor

Sarasota, Florida



I am a freelance book editor and writing coach specializing in line editing and critiques of fiction and nonfiction books. I most enjoy working on mystery, suspense, thrillers, crime, and historical novels, but I have also edited sci-fi, fantasy, YA, and romance. Along with being an editor, I am a teacher, mentor, and a budding writer's best friend. I have been in the writing, editing, and publishing business for more than 35 years. I have been a full-time book editor since 1997.

See sample covers of a few of the books I have edited below.
