Overview

I have been a children's book editor and writer for over twenty years. I am adept at helping writers streamline language, shape plot, optimize pacing and, if you're an illustrator, craft an effective visual narrative. I am the other of many books for children, including the Ada Lace series, which I co-authored with Emily Calandrelli. I have experience working with audiences of every age group.
