I am a Minnesota-based freelance editor working exclusively with novel-length fiction. I have experience with both traditional and self-published authors across all genres, handling a dark psychological thriller as easily as a YA Christian romance. I offer both basic proofreading and full developmental editing services. I love what I do, and I understand that most authors are not rolling in cash. I need to make enough money to support myself, but I don't expect you to sign huge checks over to me, either.
I am the owner and manager of a successful writing prompts blog, The One-Minute Writer, featuring daily writing prompts. In 2014 Piccadilly, Inc. released a compilation of The One-Minute Writer prompts as a journal available at Barnes & Noble.
I have worked with numerous authors to help polish their books for publication. About 1/4 of my authors are traditionally published, one with quite successful sales. The majority of my clients are self-published. Some are repeat clients who have written several books, some are new and inexperienced authors. I really enjoy the process of helping all of them bring their best work to the public.
My goal is to guide writers to their best work, to coach them in eloquence and clarity, to lead them to their best stories and storytelling.
