Overview

By day, I work full-time as an in-house editor for a Christian self-publishing company. I work with all kinds of genres and all kinds of authors (most are non-experienced, publishing their first book) and truly enjoy helping authors craft their work, making it the best it can be. If you want an honest opinion, I'm your girl.
